Land of the Lost Mammoths: A Science Adventure by Mike Davis, William Simpson

Fact: Until the late nineteenth century, it was widely believed that an ancient Viking colony had survived on the unexplored and ice-locked coast of southeast Greenland. The Danish discovery of the isolated Inuit culture of Ammassalik Fjord in 1884 did not fully dispel the myth. Indeed, modern hunters still report evidence of a lost tribe living near the notorious and seldom visited Puisortoq glacier, one of the most terrifying places in the Arctic. Story: Four teenage scientists-one of them the inventor of a superlight trike-win United Nations scholarships to spend the summer working with Professor Dansgaard at his celebrated Arctic wildlife research station in East Greenland. They think they will be counting reindeer, but instead they become the heroes of an astounding adventure. It all begins with some mysterious old bones in Dansgaards lab and an expedition to the Valley of the Runes. Before it is over, the kids have to battle screaming ice, a band of marooned Vikings, a sorcerer named Halldor, an Arctic hurricane, and a collapsing ice cave. Aside from discovering a lost world, they also learn the deep meaning of friendship and nonviolence. For readers young and old. Book jacket.
