From School Library Journal
Grade 5–8—An introduction to paleontological careers via the work of a half-dozen real-time fossil hunters digging away from Mongolia to Madagascar. The six men and women featured are passionate about their jobs and their finds, sharing their enthusiasm (and some good career advice) in personal quotes. Enhanced by full-color photos, well researched, and anchored by numerous chapter notes, but a tad dry in tone, this volume will appeal to dinophiles for its dino-data as well as to adventurers dreaming of an Indiana Jones-style career, battling sandstorms and coping with incoming tides. Green information boxes scattered about cover such topics as continental drift and the care and transport of fossils from field to lab. A chapter on preparing for a career in paleontology is appended.—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
