Om forfatteren (2002)

A series of articles in Life magazine sparked Ian Lange's fascination with Ice Age animals when he was a teenager. Paintings of gargantuan beasts and a photo of a baby woolly mammoth frozen in the arctic tundra set him wondering about the Pleistocene world and its inhabitants. A retired professor of economic geology at the University of Montana in Missoula, Lange maintains his research of Ice Age animals as a hobby.
