Book News Annotation:

The Poinars (entomology, UC Berkeley) recount their thirty-year scientific odyssey collecting ancient specimens preserved in amber from around the world. They chronicle the efforts to extract DNA from the specimens, and open a window onto the exotic world of amber and amber collectors, a world populated by black marketeers, gun-toting guerillas, and scientists racing to unravel the secrets of 125 million-year-old DNA. Includes b&w and color photos.
