Description

'Unforgettable' Mail on Sunday 'Powerful' Sunday Times 'Quietly devastating' Daily Mail 'Every line is golden' Sara Taylor 'Sublime and beautiful' Carys DaviesWhen he hears a story about a huge dinosaur fossil locked deep inside an Alpine glacier, university professor Stan finds a childhood dream reignited.

Whatever it takes, he is determined to find the buried treasure. But Stan is no mountaineer and must rely on the help of old friend Umberto, who brings his eccentric young assistant, Peter, and cautious mountain guide Gio.

Time is short: they must complete their expedition before winter sets in.

As bonds are forged and tested on the mountainside, and the lines between determination and folly are blurred, the hazardous quest for the Earth's lost creatures becomes a journey into Stan's own past. This breathless, heartbreaking epic-in-miniature speaks to the adventurer within us all.
