The Science of Living Things

Man, in his insatiable desire for knowledge, has never had a more interesting and yet more fascinating subject than that outlined in this volume. Whilst it is impossible to fix any point in prehistoric time to mark the actual beginning of animal life, the reader is introduced to the very simple forms of life of the most remote past and led, stage by stage, to that most complex of organisms, man. The story of how the early scientists learned about the living world, enduring suffering and even death for their convictions, makes fascinating reading.
