Remarkable Creatures: Epic Adventures in the Search for the Origins of Species by Sean B. Carroll

An award-wining biologist takes us on the dramatic expeditions that unearthed the history of life on our planet.
Just 150 years ago,most of our world was an unexplored wilderness.

Our sense of how old it was? Vague and vastly off the mark. And our sense of our own species' history? A set of fantastic myths and fairy tales. Fossils had been known for millennia, but they were seen as the bones of dragons and other imagined creatures.
In the tradition of The Microbe Hunters and Gods, Graves, and Scholars, Sean Carroll's Remarkable Creatures celebrates the pioneers who replaced our fancies with the even more amazing true story of how our world evolved.
Carroll recounts the most important discoveries in two centuries of national history — from Darwin's trip around the world to CharlesWalcott's discovery of pre-Cambrian life in the Grand Canyon; from Louis and Mary Leakey's investigation of our deepest past in East Africa to the trailblazers in modern laboratories who have located a time clock in our DNA. Join him in a rousing voyage of discovery, from the epic journeys of pioneering naturalists to the breakthroughs making headlines today.
