Kraft-paper colored pages with black print, with illustrations and drawings scattered informally alongside each topic. Content is presented clearly and imaginatively, useful and entertaining for novice, student and scientist alike. "Ever since Darwin, the question of ancestry, human and animal, has been hotly disputed, and a merry trail of claims, hoaxes and confusion has kept us all entertained. Until the 18th century, everyone knew where they stood on the ladder of nature, with jellyfish at the bottom, humans at the top and guinea pigs somewhere in between. But as more evidence was gathered from living things and fossils, the great chain of being started to get a bit fuzzy. And then Darwin went off to the Galapagos Islands and the fun began."" Includes index. For similar illustrative style and subject matter, see also book numbers 1342 (Get a Grip series on Genetics) and 1856 (Darwin for Beginners). ISBN 0737000368. #1343.
