Digging Snowmastodon Discovering an Ice Age World in the Colorado Rockies (Paperback)
|Author: Kirk/ Miller Johnson|
From the Publisher:
On October 14, 2010, a heavy equipment operator working at the base of the Snowmass Mountain ski area in Colorado drove his machine through the skeleton of a young female mammoth, a find that initiated the Snowmastodon dig. Told by the two lead scientists on the dig, this is the story of the next eleven months and the resulting excavation that would yield more than 5,000 bones of more than 40 kinds of animals and would change forever our understanding of alpine life in the ice ages.
