Hunt for Life

In "For Fossil Hunters, Gobi Is No Desert," John Noble Wilford of The New York Times gives us a wonderfully descriptive tale of fossil hunting in the Gobi Desert where, in his words, "only camels, nomads and hardy paleontologists seem at home." I'm not likely to ever go to Mongolia, but Wilford tells us what it's like to live there and explore the world's richest deposits of dinosaur and early mammal remains. Chang W. Lee's photos are also fantastic.
