Summary

Summary

A fascinating, highly visual biography of Mary Anning, the Victorian fossil hunter who changed scientific thinking about prehistoric life and would become one of the most celebrated paleontologists of all time. Perfect for children learning about woman scientists like Ada Lovelace, Jane Goodall, and Katherine Johnson.

Mary Anning grew up in England in a region rich in fossils unearthed by the sea. At the age of twelve, she discovered  England’s first ichthyosaur.

Anning would become one of the most celebrated paleontologists ever, though in her time she was a rarely acknowledged, poor woman who supported herself selling fossils. Her findings helped shape scientific thinking about prehistoric life and prove that extinction can occur decades before Darwin discussed evolution.

With engaging text, photographs, and stunning paleoart, The Fossil Hunter introduces this self-taught scientist, now recognized as one of the greatest fossilists the world has ever known.
