Summary
With "Life on Earth", Attenborough created a book and TV series that became a benchmark of quality, influencing a generation of nature lovers. Told through an examination of animal and plant life with occasional juxtapositions of extinct fossil forms to reveal the origin of living creatures, "Life on Earth" is an astonishing celebration of the evolution of life on Earth, with a cast of characters drawn from the whole range of organisms that have ever lived on this planet. Attenborough's perceptive, dynamic approach to the evolution of millions of species of living organisms that populate the planet takes the reader on an unforgettable journey of discovery from the very first spark of life to the blue and green wonder we know today. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the book's first publication, David Attenborough has revised "Life on Earth", updating and adding to the original text and choosing beautiful, completely new photography
