Most people have heard of Egyptian mummies and know the history behind them. But what about other, more local mummies, like the mumrny of an outlaw that was used on the set of The Six Million Dollar Man? How did the eighty-seven-year-old mummified remains of a fugitive end up as a prop for a TV show?
In a series of fascinating chapters, Brenda Z. Guiberson tells the exciting true tales of several North American mummies that helped to solve ancient mysteries--or became mysteries themselves. Mummy Mysteries is filled with photos and detailed illustrations that give clues to each puzzle. And at the end of the book, the author sets up six mysteries that let the readers become archaeological detectives.
