Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discover the origins of life on earth — from the first bacteria through the age of giant dinosaurs to the coming of humans. For 4,600 million years, there has been some form of life on Earth. At first, the Earth was a mass of raging fires and volcanoes, so early forms of life began in the seas. Prehistoric Life tells the story of these and the succeeding life forms — everything from microscopic organisms to early humans. We know about the great diversity of early life through the fossil finds from many different countries. Prehistoric Life describes how these fossils fit together into a giant jigsaw puzzle. Using reconstructions and authentic models, such fascinating creatures from Earth's prehistory as the great dinosaurs, the ferocious saber-toothed tiger, and the giant woolly mammoth, are brought vividly to life. Written by William Lindsay, an experienced paleontologist and author of many best-selling books for children on dinosaurs, Eyewitness Prehistoric Life is an exciting introduction to what life was like many millions of years ago.

Synopsis:

How did life begin? No one knows for sure. Earth itself formed 4.5 billion years ago when clouds of particles drew together under great heat and pressure. Then, scientists believe, chemicals in the atmosphere combined about 3.5 billion years ago and set off an explosion of life.
