Science fiction becomes reality in this Jurassic Park-like story of the race to resurrect an extinct species—the woolly mammoth—by the bestselling author of The Accidental Billionaires and The 37th Parallel.
“With his knack for turning narrative nonfiction into sto-ries worthy of the best thriller fiction” (Omnivoracious), Ben Mezrich takes us on an exhilarating true adventure story from the icy terrain of Siberia to the cutting-edge genetic labs of Harvard University.
This wild and wondrous tale intertwines the looming threat of global warming, miraculous new advances in science and technology, heroic fossil hunters who battle polar bears and extreme conditions, and the brave new world that arrives with mankind’s newfound ability to control the genetic code of every living creature. Humans once hunted the woolly mammoth to extinction; now we may be able to return it to life. But at what cost?
