review 1: For my daughter (age 10) and I, this book was a good introduction to an interesting topic. However, very little is known about The Ancient One. In fact, there are more unknowns than knowns. As a result, the book is heavy on detailed speculation--which tried both of our patiences. I would recommend this book for any young person with an interest in archaeology or anthropology.

At times, I felt like I was reading a science text and wish it would have been a journal or a scientific note book with drawings/doodles in the margins. It was just a little dry for the middle school environment. less

Very interesting. 9500 year old skeleton found in WA state in 1996. Hadn't even heard about it.
Fascinating stuff, but not Newbery-worthy.
I think this is interesting.
