The Skull in the Rock: How a Scientist, a Boy, and Google Earth Opened a New Window on Human Origins: Released in November 2012, the Skull in the Rock—the latest Aronson & Glenn project—is a riveting, fully-illustrated account of paleoarchaeologist Lee Berger and his son Matthew’s discovery of the hominin species Australopithecus sediba. I developed this project with Marc Aronson from editorial concept to final files, delivering the book to our publishing partner, National Geographic, as a disk ready for prepress.

A fascinating account of an Indiana Jones–style fossil hunter and how his discoveries have changed the way we see human evolution.” —Kirkus
