Although it begins with general information about fossilization and the classification of organisms, most of this well-illustrated book consists of descriptions of some 260 genera of plant and animal fossils. In each case, the classification (phylum, order, etc.) is given together with a general description, the stratigraphic position and geographical occurrence, and notes. The genera used here are only representatives of a group and the information is of a very general nature. I think that the book is intended for casual collectors even though many, if not most, of the locations are not in the United States. More than is offered here is needed to really identify almost any of the organisms mentioned. However, the book is interesting and attractive. R.G. Schipf, Univ. of Montana Lib., Missoula
