Synopsis

'This is an unforgettable novel, beautifully written and utterly gripping.' Mail on Sunday





'short but powerful' Sunday Times





'Sublime' Carys Davies, author of West





'Beautiful and devastating' Sara Taylor, author of The Shore





Stan has been hunting for fossils since the age of six. Now, in the summer of 1954, he hears a story he cannot forget: the skeleton of a huge creature - a veritable dragon - lies deep in an Alpine glacier. And he is determined to find it.





But Stan is no mountaineer. To complete his dangerous expedition, he must call on loyal friend Umberto, who arrives with an eccentric young assistant, and expert guide Gio. Time is short: the four men must descend before the weather turns. As bonds are forged and tested, the hazardous quest for the earth's lost creatures becomes a journey into Stan's own past.





A Hundred Million Years and a Day is a mesmerising story of nature, adventure and of one man's determination to follow his dream, whatever it may take.
