Des paysages étranges, une chaleur torride et (parfois) des crocodiles enragés attendent les scientifiques qui cherchent des indices sur le génie de l'évolution. Le paléontologue Paul Sereno raconte ses rencontres surprenantes avec la préhistoire — et évoque une nouvelle manière d'aider les étudiants à se joindre à l'aventure.
