Deftly mixing incredible color photographs of the remarkable fossils uncovered at the site with an explanation of their evolutionary significance, Grande presents an unprecedented, comprehensive portrait of the site, its treasures, and what we?ve learned from them. Grande presents a broad range of fossilized organisms from Fossil Lake - from single-celled algae to palm trees to crocodiles - and together they make this long-extinct community come to life in all its diversity and splendor. A field guide and atlas round out the book, enabling readers to identify and classify the majority of the known fossils from the site."@en ;
