Dinosaurs left footprints in the Arctic snow.
A novel for middle-grade readers
This story follows Pakky, a young pachyrhinosaurus living in what is now called the North Slope of Alaska. In her first year, she discovers the wonders of the yearly cycle of life and migration. She experiences her first sunless winter and learns about ice and snow, hunger and danger. She learns that even though the time of light gives way to the time of dark, light always comes back again.
Separating fact from fiction
While the story is fiction, it includes an educational non-fiction section full of dinosaur facts, discussion questions, a commentary on separating fact from fiction, and dinosaur word games.

"In Arctic Dinosaurs of Alaska, we get to enter into the minds of Arctic dinosaurs. In the process of imagining their lives, we open a window into a world unlike anything on Earth today..." Patrick S. Druckenmiller, Ph.D. - Department of Geosciences, University of Alaska Fairbanks
