What a frustrating read Fossil Huntress tells the story of Mary Leakey a British paleontologist who discovered incredible fossils during the course of her lifetime's research in Kenya and Tanzania While the prospect of a picture biography of a woman paleontologist is a great one this iteration doesn't cut it The text instead of referring to Kenya or Tanzania specifically instead describes the place where Leakey conducted her research this way Africa is a land of sun and heat and of zebras elephants and giraffes living free and wild and never goes beyond this to communicate any sense of Kenya or Tanzania as a place inhabited by anyone other than non human animals Similarly despite the vast majority of the book taking place in Kenya and Tanzania every person depicted in the illustrations is white Even setting all of this to the side the book is dry and unengaging with plodding text and no dialogue Download Ô PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ¿ Andi Diehn
