Overview

An updated edition of the award-winning primer on the evolution of the planet's life forms, Prehistoric Journey introduces readers to the wonders of the prehistoric world through an accessible text and strong, colorful photographs of world-class fossils. Arranged chronologically, the book describes the history of life on earth from the beginning of life in the seas, to the age of dinosaurs, to the age of mammals, and finally to the emergence of the modern world. Dramatic color illustrations and photographs feature the Denver Museum of Nature and Science's eight prehistoric habitat dioramas; spectacular fossils, including many of the finest examples of dinosaurs, large mammals, early primates, and giant fish; and striking watercolor illustrations that accurately render the animals and plants of the past.

Sure to fascinate readers of all ages, this engaging and accessible introduction to the wonders of the prehistoric world features unique, walk-through dioramas, based on scientific research of actual fossil sites, giving them a sense of realism. The book features 140 color photos and illustrations, including a cover painting by John Gurche, a consultant on Jurassic Park.
