A dazzling visual record of one of Earth's most extraordinary species, this updated and revised edition of Mammoths: Giants of the Ice Age integrates exciting new research to piece together the story of mammoths, mastodons, and their relatives, icons of the Ice Age. Incorporating recent genetic work, new fossil finds, new extinction theories, and more, Mammoths is a captivating exploration of how these mighty creatures evolved, lived, and mysteriously disappeared. The book features a wealth of color illustrations that depict mammoths in their dramatic Ice Age habitats, scores of photographs of mammoth remains, and images of the art of prehistoric people who saw these animals in the flesh. Have you ever wondered what a Mammoth would look like in real life? Find out what a Mammoth would look like today and so much more in Mammoths.

Full of intriguing facts, boxed features, and clear graphics, Mammoths examines the findings, including intact frozen carcasses from Siberia and fossilized remains from South Dakota, California, England, France, and elsewhere that have provided clues to the mammoths' geographic range, body structure, way of life, and interactions with early humans. It is an enthralling story of paleontological, archaeological, and geological exploration and of the fascinating investigations of biologists, anthropologists, and art historians worldwide.

From the Back Cover:

The colorful story of the mammoths involves archaeological and geological excavation and the exploratory research of biologists, anthropologists, and art historians worldwide. These findings are collected here in one volume for the first time. Superbly illustrated in full color, Mammoths features scores of photographs of mammoth remains, cave art, and prehistoric carvings made of mammoth ivory - along with fifteen dramatic reconstructions depicting how mammoths lived and how humans responded to their presence. Here, then, is the history of the origins, life, and eventual demise of a creature that has long held a special, nearly mystical, place in the human imagination. As the mammoths come to life on these pages, so too do the environments in which they lived, along with other extinct mammals and our own prehistoric ancestors who drew and carved images of mammoths more than 30,000 years ago. Mammoths is at once an up-to-date study and a dazzling visual record of one of the Earth's most extraordinary species.
