Bone Detective: The Story of Forensic Anthropologist Diane France (Women's Adventures in Science) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Diane France loves bones. Why? Because they talk to her. Every skeleton she meets whispers secrets about the life 'and death' of its owner. Diane France can hear those secrets because she's a forensic anthropologist, a bone detective. She has the science skills and know-how to examine bones for clues to a mystery: Who was this person and how did he or she die? Bones tell Diane about the life and times of famous people in history, from a Russian royal family to American outlaws and war heroes. They speak to her about murders, mass disasters, and fatal accidents. One day she's collecting skeletal evidence at a crime scene - a phone call later she's jetting to the site of a plane crash or other unexpected tragedy to identify victims. Young readers will be captivated by the thrilling real-life story of this small-town girl full of curiosity and mischief who became a world-famous bone detective.

Synopsis:

Discusses the life and many specific achievements of forensic anthropologist Diane France.
