Ben Mezrich, author of Wooly. Science fiction becomes reality in this Jurassic Park-like story of the genetic resurrection of an extinct species—the woolly mammoth—by the bestselling author of The Accidental Billionaires and The 37th Parallel. This wild and wondrous tale intertwines the looming threat of global warming, miraculous new advances in science and technology, heroic fossil hunters who battle polar bears and extreme conditions, and the brave new world that arrives with mankind’s newfound ability to control the genetic code of every living creature.
