Billions of Years, Amazing Changes: The Story of Evolution www.amazon.com
Ever since Charles Darwin revealed his landmark ideas about evolution in 1859, new findings have confirmed, expanded, and refined his concepts. Now, author Laurence Pringle, one of the nation’s premier science writers, brings together the pillars of evidence that support our understanding of evolution. Field biology, genetics, geology, paleontology, and medicine all add to the impressive structure of evidence. With a perfect blend of science and art, renowned illustrator Steve Jenkins creates stunning new depictions of important concepts and key evolutionary scientists. More than fifty photographs capture natural marvels, including awe‑inspiring fossils, life-forms, and geological wonders. The result is a full, clear, and up-to-date account of the monumental evidence supporting the modern view of evolution.
Cool book, humans live billions of seconds which just gives us enough time to learn our history if we study one year every 1/2 second.
A great book for children in the third grade and up, including tweens.
