Riversleigh - The Story of Animals in Ancient Rainforests of Inland Australia

£9.99

Product description

 Riversleigh is a palaeontologist's dream come true. As part of Lawn Hill National Park, 200 kilometres north-west of Mount Isa, Queensland, it is one of the most significant fossil deposits in the world. It is certainly the richest and most curious find ever discovered in Australia. Remains of the many thousands of weird and wonderful prehistoric animals from the last 25 million years have been superbly preserved in the limestone outcrops. The principal scientists on this remarkable excavation, have now written the definitive book on Riversleigh. The light and easy style of writing, the many colour photographs and beautifully executed artwork by Dorothy Dunphy, bring to life the whole teeming world that once populated these now arid wastes. With a foreword by David Attenborough. Hardback, dust jacket edge faded and lightly worn, page tops dusty, otherwise good condition.
