Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060233222, Hardcover)

"In 1894, Robert Peary's explorers discovered a car-sized meteorite in Greenland and hauled it off to New York's [American Museum of Natural History]. An intriguing story if conventionally told, Conrad makes it unforgettable by choosing the meteorite itself to be the narrator. [A] wonderfully fresh, energetic tale [with art that captures] the era's look and flavor expertly."--SLJ.
