"What part has North America played in the history of life? How did our continent come to be, and how has it changed over time? What was it like during past ages? What were the climate and geography like, and what plants and animals lived here? Where can fossils from each age be found? And where are there public preserves where you can view the fossils in place? North America Through Time is an exciting journey through the history of life and the part our favorite continent has played in it all. Not a dry textbook, it is written for the general reader with a strong interest in science but no professional background. Abundantly illustrated, it will grasp your attention and entertain your imagination until the very last page, winding up with a discussion of what lessons we can learn from North America's past that apply to our future. + Eighteen chapters, beginning with the Precambrian, and covering each time Period of the Paleozoic and Mesozoic Eras, and each Epoch of the Cenozoic + Twenty-five stunning paleoenvironmental reconstructions, all in full color + Over 200 color photographs of fossils."
