    Lightning Mary ePUB Á ä MOBI saudionline.co.uk lightning kindle, mary book, Lightning Mary MOBIThis is a fictionalised account of the life of Mary Anning an early 19th century paleontologist The novel covers Anning's childhood and ends when she is twelve Anning is from a poor family her father is a cabinet maker who goes fossil hunting in his spare time and they often struggle to have enough to eat Anning learns to find and extract fossils with the help of her father but she uickly surpasses him due to her tenacity and passion Through the novel we get a vivid portrait of Anning as she determinedly sets out to the treacherous cliffs to hunt for fossils Not only are the cliffs hostile and dangerous but the world itself is hostile to poor girls like Anning and to science itself Anning was living at a time when most people took the Bible literally and to suggest that fossils could be the remains of animals now extinct was to go against God's teachings Anning is afraid to admit that she's a scientist and her wish to study geology by fossil hunting on the cliffs is consi

    Lightning Mary ePUB Á ä MOBI saudionline.co.uk lightning kindle, mary book, Lightning Mary MOBII sad but inspiring tale about the famous archaeologist ‘Lighting’ Mary AnningI enjoyed the book as a whole It was very slow to begging and I think the writing style itself was a little overly descriptive and dragged but then again I also didn’t uite get on with Mary’s character so it may have simply been that which made it seem to dragI did enjoy once the action picked up however and I’m content and fulfilled with the ending Learning about Mary’s life and passion was definitely worth the readThe book is a good one for introducing the idea of prejudice and injustice towards the poor and women historically and touches on a few important historical points that may be useful in a teaching settingThe book also has a small section at the back which has illustrations a
