From Booklist:

With stunning color drawings, photographs of artifacts and fossils, and a captivating text, Lister and Bahn introduce some of the least known prehistoric creatures. Often lumped in with dinosaurs, mammoths actually lived 60 million years later, in conjunction with early man. These cousins to the elephant, fascinating in themselves, offer some incredible insights into the evolution of humankind. The authors sort out myths from archaeological findings and share some wonderful news about digs around the world. Appended are a glossary, maps to mammoth sites throughout the world, a guide to sites and museums, and a bibliography. Denise Perry Donavin

Review:

Mammoths weighed as much as 130 humans, were as tall as houses, and were a dominant species on the planet for years. Plenty of attention has been paid to dinosaurs; but relatively few titles for adults cover mammoths alone: now enjoy a fine, colorful story of their lives recreated from archaeological and geological records and the theories of a variety of scientists around the world. -- Midwest Book Review
