We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Annotation: Scientists have mapped less than 10 percent of the ridge of underwater
mountains in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. It is here that
95 percent of the volcanic activity on earth occurs. And it is also
where the scientist Rich Lutz has tracked the remarkable evolution
of bizarre creatures that spawn in hydrothermal vent fluids that are
poisonous to most other forms of life. How can life exist in this world
of utter darkness?
For Rich Lutz, a pioneer in marine biology, each dive to the frontier
of the deep holds the possibility of discovering more clues that
might help us learn how life on earth began after our planet was
formed billions of years ago.
