Time Traveler: In Search of Dinosaurs and Ancient Mammals from Montana to Mongolia.

Michael Novacek

The close proximity of Novacek's childhood home to the famed La Brea tar pits in Los Angeles fueled his fascination with dinosaurs and fossils. That fascination eventually led him to his current position as curator of paleontology at the American Museum of Natural History. Novacek's fieldwork along the way has included fossil hotbeds around the world. His experiences in Yemen, Baja, Calif., and the Andes mountains have been extraordinary. Through them, he reveals what the fossil record tells scientists about past and present life on Earth. FSG, 2002, 368 p., b&w illus., hardcover, $26.00.
