The Book Onslaught Continues



Another really good book has just been published: listmember Ronald Orenstein's 
Turtles, Tortoises, and Terrapins: Survivors in Armor.  This book has a really 
nice chapter on turtle evolution, including a nice overview of the best 
specimens, possible evolutionary paths, and a discussion of Archelon (one of 
the coolest fossils I know of).  

There is also some nice artwork by HPs Dan Varner and Dan Bensen.  

And, if you're an environmental type, the final part of the book is for you.  
Even if you're not an environmental type, Ron makes it very clear that saving 
turtles should be a priority.  However, I think many would agree that the 
really, really good art makes this book a "must have" for anyone intertested in 
fossil turtles.
