Hen’s Teeth and Horse’s Toes:  Further Reflections in Natural History, by Stephen Jay Gould

Synopsis: Over a century after Darwin published the Origin of Species, Darwinian theory is in a “vibrantly healthy state,” writes Stephen Jay Gould, its most engaging and illuminating exponent. Exploring the “peculiar and mysterious particulars of nature,” Gould introduces the reader to some of the many and wonderful manifestations of evolutionary biology.
