REMARKABLE CREATURES

By Tracy Chevalier
(a
uthor of: Girl with a Pearl Earring)

Hardback (Second hand copy in very good condition)


A novel, set in the 19th century, based on the true story of Mary Anning, the working class woman who became a pioneering Dorset fossil collector and discovered some of the most remarkable, and previously unknown prehistoric creatures. She earned the respect of the leading scientists of the day and, with the help of a long and remarkable friendship with Elizabeth Philpot, achieved the recognition she deserved.

From the cover:

"Remarkable Creatures is a superb novel of how one woman's gift transcends class and gender to lead to some of the most important discoveries of the nineteenth century. Above all, it is a revealing portrait of the intricate and resilient nature of female friendship."


Published by Harper Collins in 2009.
