            Explore astonishing landscapes teeming with giant insects, dinosaurs, and giant mammals, and see the extraordinary creatures that lived in ancient seas, to discover life from ancient creatures to early humans. In a series of stunning panoramic illustrations, this book tells the s...tory of life on Earth, from its earliest origins to the present day. The amazing story of life's evolution begins in vast oceans and swamp forests, and is shaken by dramatic extinctions caused by ice, violent volcanic eruptions, and meteor impacts. Life Through Time explores geological time and the origins of species that still exist today in early fish, amphibians, birds, reptiles, and mammals. It takes readers up to the appearance of our first human ancestors around six million years ago, the evolution of hunter-gathering Homo sapiens in the Ice Age, Stone Age farmers, the earliest civilization in Mesopotamia, the effects of the Industrial Revolution on the natural world, and people living with nature in the modern world. Open the book and let the four-billion-year journey begin!
