The Bone Detectives: How Forensic Anthropologists Solve Crimes and Uncover Mysteries of the Dead by Donna M. Jackson

Its said that dead men tell no tales -- yet their bones have some interesting stories to reveal. Thats what police depend on when the only clues to a crime are the bones of the victim. Then its time to call in the bone detectives. Following forensic anthropologist Dr. Michael Charney step-by-step through an investigation, this book shows how a persons sex, race, age, height, and weight can be determined from studying his or her bones and teeth; how markings on bones can be read to establish cause of death; how a sculptor uses clay to reconstruct a face from a skull so it can be publicized in the media and possibly recognized; and how all of this information can be used to help crack a case. Curious young readers will revel in every eerie detail of award-winning journalist Donna Jacksons lively text and Charlie Fellenbaums full-color photographs as they discover how these fascinating detectives help the stories behind the bones come to life.
