Life in Stone is the first book to focus on British Columbia's fossils. Each of its chapters is written by a specialist for a general audience, and each is devoted to a separate fossil group that is particularly well represented in the province. Richly illustrated with photographs and drawings, Life in Stone will provide fascinating reading for anyone interested in learning more about the animals and plants that inhabited British Columbia during prehistoric times.
Rolf Ludvigsen lives on Denman Island, British Columbia, where he runs the Denman Institute for Research on Trilobites. He is an adjunct professor in the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of Victoria and the Chair of the British Columbia Paleontological Alliance.
For the beginner, this fascinating book will challenge and reward in equal measure. For the professional, it will provide a valuable introduction to the literature and to British Columbia’s ancient history.
