Roy Chapman Andrews was one of the last great scientific explorers, and this account vividly chronicles his adventures on land and sea. Beginning with Andrews's boyhood in small-town Wisconsin, this book traces his life through five fossil-hunting expeditions into the Gobi desert in the 1920s, documenting how his discoveries are still changing paleontology's understanding of dinosaurs today. Gallenkamp adroitly illustrates how supposedly apolitical scientific investigations are interwoven with international politics. Though DRAGON HUNTER introduces terms from multiple languages, cultures, and scientific disciplines, Scott Brick reads it flawlessly. However, the wealth of detail is sometimes overwhelming to listen to. G.T.B. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
