Daring to Dig: Adventures of Women in American Paleontology
« on: November 26, 2019, 12:22:47 AM »


I'm pleased to feature "Daring to Dig" at Dino Dad Reviews! This book shines some long overdue spotlight on 12 important paleontologists who all happen to be of the female persuasion. I've seen this reviewed before at the Mary Anning's Revenge blog, and have been meaning to get around to it ever since.
Check it out at Dino Dad Reviews!

There's actually a bit of a trend of books about female paleontologists right now.
 I've also reviewed "The Dinosaur Expert"...

...and "Fossil Huntress", the story of renowned paleoanthropologist Mary Leakey.
