The Story of Life

Professor Sir Richard Southwood

  • A natural historian's account of the story of life, told with infectious enthusiasm
  • Generously illustrated with maps charting the movements of the continents, line drawings of extant and extinct animals and plants both alone and within their landscapes
  • Covers the entire period from the formation of the Earth to the present day - with some speculation about the future
  • Straightforwardly written so as to be accessible to readers with little scientific background knowledge
