The book Giants of Land, Sea and Air - Past and Present was my entry into the world of paleontology. It was followed by several others including From the Beginning - The Story of Human Evolution (both can be read for free online at davidpetersstudio.com.

My latest projects are www.reptileevolution.com and www.pterosaurheresies.wordpress.com.
