Once, the ocean of Tethys stretched across the world. It vanished just before Man appeared on Earth. Dorrik Stow tells of the powerful forces that created and destroyed a great ocean, its marine life, its extinctions, its impact on climate, and the many clues by which scientists have put together its story, stretching back 250 million years.
