Description: In 1938, a young woman curator of a small South African museum spotted a strange-looking fish in a fisherman's catch. Five feet long with steel-blue scales, luminescent eyes, and bizarre limb-like fins, it was unlike any fish she had ever seen. The ichthyologist's discovery astonishingly turned out to be a coelacanth, a creature presumed extinct for 70 million years and believed to be the evolutionary link between fish and reptiles, and eventually, mammals and humankind. This "greatest scientific find of the century" instantly sparked competition across the world: over the next 50 years, nations waged scientific wars to own it, multimillion-dollar expeditions were launched, and submarines were even handbuilt to find it, until another discovery -- the most amazing of all -- was made in 1998. Written with a gripping intensity that builds to a startling climax, A Fish Caught in Time includes numerous firsthand accounts and never-before-seen photographs of this strange and controversial creature.
This is the first book to tell the complete story behind the coelacanth.
Weinberg has written for the New York Times Magazine, George, the American and Italian editions of Vogue, the London Times, the Sunday Times, and the Daily Telegraph.
