Rate this:
In 1938 Marjorie Courtenay-Latimer, the young curator of a small South African museum, spotted an unusual fish which turned out to be a coelacanth, thought to be extinct along with the dinosaurs. The subsequent search for another example of this fish, "believed to be the first fish to crawl from the sea and evolve into reptiles, mammals, eventually mankind," led to international piracy, rumors and obsessions.--Jacket.
