Annotation:
A senior paleontologist at the Natural History Museum of London writes warmly about his pet subject--a 500 million year old arthropod called the Trilobite. This former sea-dwelling crustacean-like creature survived 300 million years of climate change and continental drift, but now its closest living relative is the horseshoe crab. Fortey writes enthusiastically as he describes the world from the Trilobite's point of view.

Praise

Guardian (London)
"Fortney, the Natural History Museum expert who wrote the knockout LIFE: AN AUTHORISED BIOGRAPHY, has followed it up with something more intense, more personal and in the long run probably more enlightening....If there is any justice, Trilobite! will do for paleontology what LONGITUDE did for navigation." - Tim Radford 06/24/2000
