Seventeenth-century Danish anatomist Nicholai Steno spent much of his scientific life working for the Medicis in Florence, where he was renowned for his skill in dissection. When he turned his attention to fossils, he invented the basic principles of studying the Earth's strata, demonstated that our planet was much older than was then believed, and showed that fossils are the remains of animal life, rather than animal-like fossils. He is today recognized as the "founder of the science of geology." Grover Gardner gives a straightforward rendition. His performance is all that one would expect from an AUDIOFILE Golden Voice--no histrionics; no unnecessary embellishments; just a clear, enjoyable listen. R.E.K.
