"Walking with Beasts" Reviews


Since the dinosaurs died out over 65 million years ago, our planet has been dominated by mammals. A succession of bizarre evolutionary specimens has come and gone - from walking whales to sabre-toothed cats - yet many of these magnificent creatures have never been visualised before. Now, for the first time, spectacular and unfamiliar animals are recreated and set in the context of their world. This remarkable book (a tie-in to an ambitious BBC series) reveals the extraordinary ancestors of modern mammals and the arrival of man, bringing to life the roots of our heritage. The text is illustrated throughout with groundbreaking computer graphic images to offer a unique record of lost worlds never seen before and reveal many of the most spectacular periods in earth's history.
