The Last Giant of Beringia: the Mystery of the Bering Land Bridge

by

The Last Giant of Beringia: the Mystery of the Bering Land Bridge Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The intriguing theory of a land bridge linking Siberia and Alaska during the coldest pulsations of the Ice Ages had been much debated since the idea was first proposed in 1589. But proof of the land bridge-now named Beringia after eighteenth-century Danish explorer Vitus Bering-eluded scientists until an inquiring geologist named Dave Hopkins emerged from rural New England and set himself to the task of solving the mystery. This compelling blend of science, biography, and history follows the life story of the eclectic Hopkins as he solves this mystery-and creates an international stir that solidified his place in history. An account that is both thrilling and accessible, The Last Giant of Beringia is popular science writing at its best.

Synopsis:

A tale of science, adventure, and personality that evolves into a complete review of the history and knowledge of Beringia.... I recommend it to everyone. -The Times (London)
