This book makes learning about fossils just as much fun as collecting them. Readers encounter a breathtaking terrain covering fossil types and formation, plate tectonics, fossil dating, past life on Earth, and much more. Thanks to dynamic descriptions, diagrams, and photos, the reader‘s natural curiosity is firmly grounded in rock-solid information.
“When I was a kid, I loved collecting rocks at an old lead mine near my parents‘ house. I never found a fossil there, but I did find some many years later. Writing this book gave me a chance to delve deeper into the basics of earth science. Now I think about the geologic history of areas whenever I travel."
