Jane is a serious scientist on the cutting-edge team of a bold project looking to 'de-extinct' the wooly mammoth. She's privileged to have been sent to Siberia to hunt for ancient DNA, but there's a catch: Jane's two 'tagalong' teen daughters are there with her in the Arctic, and they're bored enough to cause trouble. ... When [they] stumble upon a 4,000-year-old baby mammoth that has been perfectly preserved, their discovery sets off a chain of events that pit Jane against her colleagues. ... [This novel] takes readers on an expansive, big-hearted journey that explores the possibility and peril of the human imagination on a changing planet, what it's like to be a woman and a mother in a field dominated by men, and how a wondrous discovery can best be enjoyed with family, even teenagers.

1.04" H x 9.23" L x 6.35" W, 288 pages, hardcover.
