Anmeldelser

«The prose is evocative, and Turvey weaves the natural history and folklore into an invigorating treatise on the nature of belief and knowledge. Vivid and transportive, this is a winner.»

Publishers Weekly

«Part travelogue and part science, Samuel Turvey’s The Tomb of the Mili Mongga seeks out those elusive links between the present and the past, between fossils and folklore, and brings the reader along on an unexpected journey of discovery.»

Steve Brusatte

«A thoughtful and approachable scientific travelogue stuffed with mystery, humor, and ... monsters? You'll never think about fossils in the same way again! A must read.»

Beth Shapiro

«Turvey's gripping adventures are a quest to understand human consciousness and explore the differences between cultural truths and scientific facts.»

Richard Fortey

«Like a marvellous combination of H Rider Haggard and Gerald Durrell … Turvey brings fascinatingly diverse scholarship to bear, from theories of species extinction to joyous readings in folklore and anthropology.»

Daily Telegraph

«Paints a vivid and insightful portrait of a land and its people.»
