Kirk R. Johnson - Cruisin' the Fossil Coastline: The Travels of an Artist and a Scientist Along the Shores of the Prehistoric Pacific

Upcoming Event
Sunday, February 3, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Johnson’s sequel to Cruisin' the Fossil Freeway takes readers up the Pacific coast from Mexico to Alaska in search of fossils and the people fascinated with them. Again partnering with the artist Ray Troll, Johnson, a paleobotanist and the Sant Director of the Smithsonian’s Museum of Natural History, flies, boats, and drives through one of the richest troves of fossils on the continent. He visits museums and labs as well as the far-flung sites that have turned up creatures like pygmy mammoths, oyster bears, immense ammonites, shark-bitten camels, polar dinosaurs, Alaskan palms, California walruses, and a lava-baked rhinoceros. A combination field trip, adventure, and graphic novel, the book is a masterful celebration of the wonders of the geologic record.
