Reviews

"Whether it is the logistics of conducting fieldwork in tune with the life cycle of the peregrine falcons on the McKenzie River, extracting bones from the permafrost, dealing with Arctic mosquitoes, or envisioning the high Arctic world during the Cretaceous, Gangloff takes you there as only a true field paleontologist can. His vivid narrative brings this research to life." Jim Kirkland, State Paleontologist of Utah "Gangloff makes both modern and ancient Alaska come alive for the armchair palaeontologist far from the madding bugs. He praises volunteers who visited the remote northern site to dig dinosaur bones from a layer of soft rock deposited by an ancient flood... It's a fascinating story, but far from complete. Now retired, Gangloff exhorts the new generation: "Go north young men and women, the field is wide open and there is so much to be discovered." - Jeff Hecht, The New Scientist, June 9th 2012
