Mammoth: The Resurrection of an Ice Age Giant

Synopsis

In this adventure-filled narrative, science writer Richard Stone follows two groups of explorers -- one a Russian-Japanese team, the other a Frenchled consortium -- as they battle bitter cold, high winds, and supply shortages to carry out their quest. Armed with GPS, ground-penetrating radar, and Soviet-era military helicopters, they seek an elusive prize: a mammoth carcass that will help determine how the creature lived, how it died -- and how it might be brought back to life.

A riveting tale of high-stakes adventure and scientific hubris, Mammoth is also an intellectual voyage through uncharted moral terrain, as we confront the promise and peril of resurrecting creatures from the deep past.
