Book - 1994
Rate this:
The past is very much part of Alberta's present. From Devonian pools plumbed by today's oil industry to Cenozoic rangelands bordering the Rockies, the livelihood of many Albertans is touched directly by the ancient past. Lavishly illustrated and lovingly produced, this book quarries the fossil record to reveal its depth and richness and to connect it to the present. Drawing on the famous Royal Tyrrell Museum's fossil collections and its world-renowned scientists, this is a wide-ranging, accessible natural history book that speaks not only of Earth but of ourselves.
