When Heather Pringle covers a meeting of mummy experts in northern Chile, she discovers a little-known yet fascinating world of science. In her book, she profiles several mummy researchers and a wide variety of mummies. Her quest leads to the tombs of medieval saints, the bogs of the Netherlands, icy mountaintops, and, of course, Egypt. She makes what could be a dry and dreary area of science come alive by presenting the science in an orderly way, one bite at a time. Fields presents the scientific material clearly and carries the author’s enthusiasm. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 01]
