Editorial Reviews

Review

Gangloff makes both modern and ancient Alaska come alive for the armchair palaeontologist.

New Scientist

Dinosuars under the Aurora immerses readers in the challenges, stark beauty, and hard-earned rewards of conducting paleontological field work in the Arctic. . . . Gangloff takes readers on a delightful and instructive journey into the world of paleontology as it is conducted in the land under the aurora.

Guardian-Birdbooker Report

in his book, [Gangloff] demonstrates the importance of arctic paleontological research―especially in Alaska―and shares his experience with field research in an easy to read format.

thenorthernlight.org

Using his own distinguished career as a springboard, Gangloff has assembled an accessible and eloquently written introduction to the history of dinosaur research in Alaska, where it presently stands and what the future might hold.

Review

Gangloff's engaging, personal writing style in Dinosaurs Under the Aurora leads the reader to imagine themselves in the room with him personally enthusing you about the polar dinosaurs of Alaska with a wry comment or two along the way. This book tells just how these unique fossils were collected under the trying conditions of working in the High Arctic along with detailing the scientific significance of these unique fossils, in both narrow and broader contexts. Fascinating are Gangloff's observations on the social setting in which his own research projects were carried out. And most intriguing of all are the unanswered questions that he posits, whetting the appetites for future researchers.

-- Thomas H. Rich and Patricia Vickers-Rich ― authors of Dinosaurs of Darkness --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
