"Multibillionaire Howard Christian is one of the wealthiest -- and most eccentric -- men in the country. Not content with investing his fortune and watching it grow, he buys rare cars that he actually drives, acquires collectible toys that he actually plays with, and builds buildings that defy the imagination. But now his restless mind had turned to a new obsession: cloning a mammoth... In a barren province of Canada, a mammoth hunter financed by Christian has made the discovery of a lifetime: an intact frozen woolly mammoth. But what he finds during the painstaking process of excavating the huge creature baffles the mind. Huddled next to the mammoth is the mummified body of a Stone Age man around 12,000 years old. And he is wearing a wristwatch. It looks like Howard Christian is going to get his wish -- and much more..." I found this to be a really good human interest story. It's a what if kind of story also. I was a little confused by the way the chapters are numbered but it made sense at the end. It's an interesting story about what could happen if time travel was possible. I found Howard to be a rather unlikeable character for most of the book but later find myself wondering about his life. There was some interesting science presented regarding prehistoric life in North America and the people and animals who lived there at the time.
