Helen E. FisherDavid Rains Wallace, a science writer with 15 books to his credit, offers no original theories on mammalian evolution in Beasts of Eden. Instead, he presents a thoroughly researched, richly detailed and lively book on the ''bone hunters'' who traversed the badlands of the world searching for the fossils of mammals and on the vituperative intellectual battles that some of these paleontologists waged with one another. And as these stories unfold, one becomes familiar with the primary ideas and events in the rise of modern evolutionary thinking.
