Life in Stone A Natural History of British Columbia's Fossils by Rolf Ludvigsen

Life in Stone A Natural History of British Columbia's Fossils


Life in Stone A Natural History of British Columbia's Fossils by Rolf Ludvigsen

Life in Stone is the first book to focus on British Columbia's fossils. Each of its chapters is written by a specialist for a general audience, and each is devoted to a separate fossil group that is particularly well represented in the province. Richly illustrated with photographs and drawings, Life in Stone will provide fascinating reading for anyone interested in learning more about the animals and plants that inhabited British Columbia during prehistoric times.


For the beginner, this fascinating book will challenge and reward in equal measure. For the professional, it will provide a valuable introduction to the literature and to British Columbia's ancient history. -- John E. Storer * Canadian Book Review Annual, 1996 *
