Eaten by a Giant Clam

By Joseph Cummins
The history of natural science is often a case of truth being stranger than fiction. There are countless adventure stories to be told, rollicking tales of men and women risking life and limb in the name of science and in the cause of the broadening of human knowledge. Eaten by a Giant Clam focuses on the work of these natural scientists in the field. It comprises 22 stories, with a focus on the heyday of natural history endeavours between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries. This fascinating book ranges in content from the humorous to the tragic, from the virtually unbelievable to the inspirational.
