Dinosuars under the Aurora immerses readers in the challenges, stark beauty, and hard-earned rewards of conducting paleontological field work in the Arctic. . . . Gangloff takes readers on a delightful and instructive journey into the world of paleontology as it is conducted in the land under the aurora., Guardian-Birdbooker Report
Gangloff makes both modern and ancient Alaska come alive for the armchair palaeontologist., New Scientist
in his book, [Gangloff] demonstrates the importance of arctic paleontological research―especially in Alaska―and shares his experience with field research in an easy to read format., thenorthernlight.org
Using his own distinguished career as a springboard, Gangloff has assembled an accessible and eloquently written introduction to the history of dinosaur research in Alaska, where it presently stands and what the future might hold., newsminer.com
Whether it is the logistics of conducting fieldwork in tune with the life cycle of the peregrine falcons on the Colville 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

If you are a paleontologist who will not blink at this punctilious process, adding knowledge about a blizzard of taxonomy, you will be right at home in this. If it's all new to you it won't be when you finish but you will enjoy the experience as much as the author does.
I bought this from Amazon instead of the university bookstore because it saved me the cold, dirty trip.
