Mummies are like time capsules guarding long-lost information. Adapted from the acclaimed chapter book, the three stories in this book convey strange stories and fantastic facts that beginning readers can use to solve mysteries from the past. Examine a 36,000-year-old bison from Alaska, the ruins of a deserted Anasazi city, and the grave of "the outlaw who wouldn't give up."
