Its trumpeting cries blasted into the cold Siberian air. But its mighty struggles only pulled it deeper into the soft mud. . . .

Could this have been the fate of the young woolly mammoth discovered more than 20,000 years after it died? As scientists carefully thaw this giant intact prehistoric mammal, they hope to learn more about how the species lived and why it–the largest mammal to ever live–became extinct. But most important, this animal’s well-preserved body may help answer an incredible question–can the mammoth be cloned and one day walk the earth again?

Breathtaking, accurate illustrations; full-color photographs; fascinating maps; and informative diagrams bring the story of the amazing mammoth to life in this large-size hardcover.
