Tribe of Trilobites & My Journey down Paleontology Lane

this one, 5 x 5 inches, was done under the influence of Edgar Rice Burrough's At The Earth's Core. Which borrows heavily from Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth. I have been listening it on Librivox, which I recently discovered. It's pretty neat - free audio books! books in the public domain read by volunteers. you can listen or volunteer at their website.

I think At the Earth's Core is a bit silly, but then I am not the target audience, a young man reading adventure novels in the early part of the last century. (It was originally published in 1914.) Anyway, I continue my journey down Paleontology Lane.
