The Story in the Stone
How the Isthmus of Panama changed the world: a story for young readers.

The Story in the Stone: The Formation of a Tropical Land Bridge was written for Turnstone Publishing Group. Through partnerships with major scientific research institutions around the world, Turnstone has created a collection of supplementary science curriculum materials for the K-12 market that gives students the chance to see what it's really like, day by day, to be at the forefront of scientific discovery and exploration.
In The Story in the Stone, students join a team of paleontologists as they search for clues to the formation of the Isthmus of Panama and how it changed the world. The book introduces young readers to plate tectonics, climate change, foraminifera, fossil coral, and prehistoric mammals.
