Buried Treasures: Uncovering Secrets of the Past

St%C3%A9phane Compoint. Abrams, $19.95 (80p) ISBN 978-0-8109-9781-3
Photographer Compoint offers a striking survey of archeological discoveries and explorations into living mysteries. Twenty-five feet underwater, divers hover near a statue of a sphinx, a remnant of the ancient city of Alexandria; in southern Egypt, researchers unearth mummified bodies from tombs near the Kharga Oasis; a guide tracks and discovers the elusive blue bear in the Alaskan wilderness; and a team of paleontologists reconstruct the bones of the Baluchitherium, "the largest land-based animal that had ever lived." Compoint portrays the meticulous nature of excavation, transportation, and preservation of precious artifacts, while capturing the adrenaline-pumping excitement of piecing together mysteries past and present. Ages 9–up. (May)
