Dig: A Personal Prehistoric Journey
November 6, 2018
This book follows Sam on a cross-country Amtrak trip with a final destination of a fossil dig. Buried within are encounters in museums big and small and interviews with many of Sam’s childhood heroes: paleontologists, artists, and others who’ve dedicated their lives to revealing the distant past.
Part science and nature adventure and part memoir, this book is all dinosaur.
