Capstone Press Imagine the blooming of the very first flower. Or a 3-ton sloth with massive claws standing as tall as a giraffe. And horses the size of small dogs that have toes instead of hooves. This is not a dream or vision of an artist or author. This is North America over 20 million years ago! Journey into the distant past with this book and witness the earliest events in North America; when mammals rose from the shadows of the extinct dinosaurs to fill the land, and the first flowers and grasslands bloomed.
Baker & Taylor Describes the evolutionary and geologic changes that occurred on Earth during the Cenozoic era, including the diversification of mammals and the movement of the continents to their current positions.
