5.0 out of 5 stars The Fossil Book July 3 2003
By Betty Matthews - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The original version of this book was published in 1958. It is a wonderful introduction to the fossil record. The book is organized by begining with the oldest fossils, and working forward through time to the most recent fossils. There are many excellent drawings and photographs to help the reader understand not only what the living animal looked like, but what the typical fossil parts look like.

This book does not require the reader to already be a scientist in order to understand and enjoy it's contents. For the amateur fossil collector, this is a valuable reference book that will be used over, and over again.

Many important discoveries have been made in geology since 1958, and the more recent edition(s) incorporate these discoveries. Like all sciences, geology is a growing body of knowledge.

Great book for the fossil collector. Filled with information and photos this book belongs in with your other resources. This book touches on fossils from the most basic to the more complex and works for collectors collecting from any period.
