«Deftly weaving in paleontological and geological facts, this riveting account presents an unflinching look at what it meant to be born poor, uneducated, female, and brilliant, at a time when women were denied the opportunity to become scientists. I couldn’t put it down.”  — Sarah Albee, NYT bestselling author of Accidental Archeologists and Bugged "Well-written and thoroughly researched." — Kirkus Reviews "A personal and compelling glimpse into an important scientific mind." — Booklist "This in-depth, beautifully illustrated biography of Mary Anning sings with the passion and perseverance of the woman herself, who from girlhood on scoured the shifting cliffs of her native Dorset to dig out prehistoric mysteries and make sense of them—altering forever our view of the past." — Joyce Sidman, Newbery Honor winner and Sibert Medal winner »
