While experimenting with time a scientist is transported 80 million years into prehistory. He is Sam Magruder, a chronologist from the 22nd Century who finds himself stark naked and the only human on earth. The novel describes his struggle to survive, feeding on lizards and scrambled turtle eggs while fighting off dinosaurs. A study of modern human existence against the background of our distant past. The book is the only novel by a renowned paleontologist (1902-84), author of Concessions to the Improbable
Charles Darwin's autobiography; with his notes and letters depicting the growth of the origin of species by Charles Darwin ( Book )
3 editions published in 1950 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What sort of man was this revolutionary thinker? Just what did he do? What do his achievements mean to us and what consequences have they had for our own world? Darwin himself could not anticipate the answer to the last of these three questions. His autobiography is the best single source of answers to the first two. It must be true that no one can adequately judge his own character, but in these pages Darwin, the objective scientist, comes unusually near to a truly dispassionate estimate of himself. - p. 2
