    1. a goldilocks book - not too heavy - not too light. Only 14,000 years ago (or less) these giants became extinct in Wisconsin, what a sight that must have been. When I was a kid I loved this type of book - Now we are dooming our last land giants, the elephant and rhino. worse, we are managing to threaten our own survival. Such superior animals we are. Hard to have much faith in a people who would choose a manifestly unfit imbecile to lead them -

    2. If you are like me and think that mammoths (and other megafauna) are fascinating, this is a great book for you. Gorgeous illustrations, and everyting from the history of the major mammoth finds to natural history and ecology notes. Things I had not known: the hyrax (a small rock-dwelling mouse type mammal) is the closest living relative to the mammoth other than elephants. (Determined via very specific similarities in the ear bones and joints, and then proven with DNA comparisons.) Manatees and [...]

    3. Mammoths: Giants of the Ice Age by Adrian Lister and Paul Bahn (Frances Lincoln Ltd. 2007) (569.67) is a fantastic glimpse into the life and times of the mammoth during the Upper Paleolithic period. The author shares mind-boggling trivia. This is an excellent book on prehistoric times. My rating: 7.75/10, finished 9/9/13.

    4. This book is outdated now, howeveer the photos of cave are and especially prehistoric ivory carvings are beautiful. a fascinating book.
