Book Giveaway! Fantastic Fossils

This book condenses most of what you find in a college textbook on paleontology into a concise, readable handbook that explains everything from how to find and collect fossils to how to assign them scientific names. No fossil enthusiast should be without it!

It’s the second day of our SVP virtual exhibit and we’re kicking it off with a book giveaway!

Nothing fills us with a sense of wonder like fossils. What looks at first like a simple rock is in fact a clue that reveals the staggering diversity of ancient environments, the winding pathways of evolution, and the majesty of a vanished earth. In Fantastic Fossils: A Guide to Finding and Identifying Prehistoric Life, Donald R. Prothero offers an accessible, entertaining, and richly illustrated guide to the paleontologist’s journey. He details the best places to look for fossils, the art of how to find them, and how to classify the major types. Fill out the form below for a chance to win a copy of the book!
