This book and the "She Sells Sea Shells" tongue twister is written about Mary Anning, born in 1799. Mary's father was a fossil hunter and Mary joined him at a young age, finding many extraordinary fossils throughout her lifetime. It was an interesting book, even though it was biased towards evolutionary beliefs. I enjoyed discussing the book with my geologist husband who recognized some of the scientists mentioned in the book.
