This beautifully illustrated book describes one of the most famous fossil deposits known: the Hunsrück Slate of Germany. These spectacular fossils, in which not just the hard parts but also the soft-tissues of the animals are preserved in pyrite in many cases, provide the most complete record available of life in the Devonian seas. First published in 1998, the book provides a comprehensive account of these remarkable fossils. It is written in an accessible style, and is extensively illustrated with photographs and X-radiographs of many of the finest specimens. The book reviews the different plant and animal groups, and includes a complete taxonomic list and comprehensive bibliography. It will be of most value to researchers and graduate students in palaeontology, geology and evolutionary biology, but it will also be of interest to amateur collectors and natural historians.

A Geologic Time Scale 1989

This is a concentrated review of the time scales used in geology in order to date stratigraphic sequences and to define geological epochs. The text presents, discusses and evaluates the state of chronostratigraphic, chronometric and other scales. The book is the planned successor to A Geologic Timescale by Harland et al (CUP, 1982). It adopts the same style and employs similar methods, but it has been entirely reworked. The work develops and assesses a new calibration of the geologic timescale employing a new data base that will provide a source of reference destined to serve for some years. The new scale will provide an invaluable reference work for all serious geologists, both students and professionals.

I have entitled my book "Emerging" as it embodies my journey into writing. In my early 50's, the desire to simplify my life and spend time in silence and stillness "emerged" from within me. As I followed my heart and stepped onto this quiet path, my writing began to flourish. I kept a journal over the next few years and wrote of my experiences. This is a book of poetry written from my heart to yours. It speaks of my journey into silence and the variety of experiences that space offers me. It speaks of my "conversations with an angel" as I seek answers to my questions as I travel along life's path. It speaks of my relationship with nature and with the "heavenly bodies" - of the beauty, wisdom and love they offer me on my journey. And, finally, it speaks of my reflections on living and loving as I continue to explore and discover more of who I am. The poems are beautifully illustrated by my friend, Rich, whose creativity helps bring them to life. This is a simple, reflective book which, I believe, offers a glimpse at the wisdom, comfort and love available to each of us everyday.
