The Way Life Works
This highly original book takes you on a guided tour of the many ways all life grows, develops, reproduces itself, and gets along. Distinguished scientist Mahlon Hoagland and dazzling illustrator Bert Dodson, your tour guides, merge science and art through the expert, often amusing intertwining of text and illustration. Their mind-stretching analogies, trenchant explanations, and rich visual presentations encourage the reader to make imaginative leaps from the panoramic world around us to the world within the cell and back again.
