HISTORY is GREAT, October 18, 2002

The book was great and people don't appreciate the topics stated in the book. Many people just skimmed through the book and found it horrible but if you read it for meaning, you will find the book to be very good.

A Bone From A Dry Sea

I had to read the book "A Bone From A Dry Sea" for school and since no one else in my group wanted to read it, I ended up reading it and loving it. The book tells about the adventures of "Li" a girl who lived in Africa 4 million years ago and the story also talks about the life of a girl named "Vinny" who discovers the remains of a dolphin's shoulder blade and who also discovered some of Li's life when she visited her father in Africa.

Outstanding Book!

Wonderful as content based novel in SS instruction

Compelling and Hard to put Down!

The book is really good and makes you think about what might have been millions of years ago. This is a great book and everyone should read it

Theorizing about the past... subtly mysterious.

Loved this book... hard to put down."A Bone Fromm A Dry Sea" tells the story of Vinny... and her ancient ancestor Li, who lived millions of years ago. Now, Vinny has found a shoulder blade... the blade of a dolphin that lived long ago
