Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
In 1997, the scientists and explorers in the frigid outreaches of Siberia unearthed the 20,000-year-old remains of a woolly mammoth -- a feat documented in Discovery Channel's Raising the Mammoth, which proved a sensation both on cable TV and in its subsequent home video release. If you've been wondering what they've been up to since, this fascinating new documentary fills in the many blanks. The remains have led to new clues about the Earth's ancient Ice Age, and adventurers have spread out across the Taimyr Peninsula in search of more mammoth specimens. But the expedition doesn't end there. Land of the Mammoth takes the findings one step further with the help of amazingly lifelike computer animation that affords viewers a first-person look inside the mammoth's mysterious world.
