A variation on a theme familiar to this author, hunter of prehistoric animals and museum expert, begins with a reconstruction of the tragedy of the La Brea tar pits centuries ago when animals like the saber-toothed tiger were sucked down into the bubbling oil there to die and have their skeletons preserved for the scientists of today. Moving on into the different branches of the study of prehistoric animals and into case histories of particularly interesting . Dr. Andrews speaks of the formation of sedimentary rock and the fossils it so often can cains, of the age of mammals and their early world migrations, and of such wonders as the Beast of Baluchistan, the wandering Rhinoceros, the Shovel-jawed Mastodon, the Glyptodont and the Horse. And into much of the material he incorporates the ever wonderful adventures he himself has had in the field. [Suggest a different description.]
