Cutting edge science and Arctic adventure come alive in this story of a unique discovery – a nearly perfectly preserved baby woolly mammoth that suddenly appears on a Siberian riverbank, triggering an extraordinary investigation into her life and death at the end of the last Ice Age. Following Baby Lyuba’s trail from her discovery site to labs across the globe, the investigators search for clues that will reveal how she emerged into the 21st century, why she stayed so remarkably intact 40-thousand-years after her death, and what the secrets hidden in her body may ultimately reveal about her life and the world of the woolly mammoth before the great extinctions.
