Now how can any self-respecting knowledge buff turn down something as cool as this? Just one of a number of maps available this map gives the viewer an idea of what the earth's landmasses looked like long before humanity climbed down out of the trees.
Packed to the edges with illustrations of many of the known critters that walked, crawled or flew over the surface of our planet, there is no way this map could be called boring or not educational... quite the opposite. I was most impressed with the timeline down the side, looking somewhat like a wind-filled sail, it is layered into the geographical epochs our planet has so far passed through, from the very tip being the beginnings of the planet's life, right down to the Holocene period in which humanity currently lives...
My son and I have spent many hours pouring over this map, trying to wrap our tongue around some of the more convoluted names, making guesses about evolutionary family chains, having a good giggle at some of the antics the artist made them do... hours of fun went by in a flash.
Overall, the detail is astounding, and there is so much on the map you will be hard-pressed to recall even a third of it after much study, but at $15.00 it is easily affordable and so long as you have a big enough patch of bare wall or floor, you can stare at it any time you feel the mood strike you. A must-have for any geography student interested in a career in archaeology or paleontology. Get them going while they are still young...
