Start with _The RNA World_ 1993.  Gesteland, R.F.; Atkins, J.F. ed. Cold 
Sping Harbor Laboratory Press...

Joyce, G.F. 1989.  RNA evolution and the origins of life.  Nature 338:217-224

Lazcano, A.; Miller, S.L.  1994.  How long did it take for life to begin 
and evole to cyanobacteria?  J. Mol. Evol. 39:546-554

Benner, S.A., Ellington, A.D., Tauer, A.  1989.  Modern metabolism as a 
palimpsest of the RNA world.  PNAS 86:7054-7058

Hope this helps...
