Prehistoric Mammals

National Geographic Prehistoric MammalsBy Alan Turner, Illustrated by Mauricio Anton
Hardcover :  192 Pages
October 1, 2004

Prehistoric Mammals is another wonderful pairing from the Turner/Anton super duo. It's an introductory book intended for a younger crowd, but even as an adult I really enjoyed it. The visuals are absolutely stunning and are found everywhere in the text. It has a really broad coverage of mammals dating back millions and millions of years, and profiles specific species from the well known to the relatively obscure. It additionally provides introductory information on mammalian evolution and the prehistoric time line. It additionally provides insight into how such wonderful artistic reconstructions are put together.
