Far more than most museums, Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History has remade the way we see the world, and here Richard Conniff delves into its colorful past, looking at the institution's events, achievements, and scandals, while surveying a range of bold explorers, roughneck bone hunters, and visionary scientists. Some became famous for wresting Brontosaurus, Triceratops, and other dinosaurs from the earth, others pioneered the introduction of science education in North America, and still others rediscovered the long-buried glory of Machu Picchu. Nearly 100 color images portray important figures in the Peabody's history and special objects from the museum's thirteen million collected items.
