about this item
A funny, wild romp through the geologic eras with an eccentric narrator who tells his story in Shakespearian sonnet form
Colonel Victor Von Vector has a blunderbuss gun with a peculiar recoil. When he shoots, he gets kicked back in time 600 million years to the Cambrian Period. With each subsequent shot, Victor moves through geologic time, encountering beasts of the past and wandering through the varied environments that have colored Earth’s history. Utilizing the Shakespearian sonnet as his means of record, Victor’s journey is presented in 17 poems with 17 illustrated plates.
