Summary
A History of Natural History tells the story of our relationship with the natural world. Each chapter focuses on a different creature or species, and the exploration of our reaction to them casts a fascinating light on us - the lion offers a starting point to discussing our relationship with power; the great white shark with fear; coral with the idea of paradise; and the mandrake with poisons. In the expert hands of Brett Westwood and Stephen Moss, this is translated into an imaginative and inspiring book, full of great stories. A History of Natural History will bring you face to face with the natural world in all its wonder, complexity and invention
