KIRKUS REVIEW

The Smithsonian institution composed of such branches as The Freer Art Gallery, The National Zoological Park. The Air Museum, has a myriad of fascinating stories to recount, stories of its acquisition and preservation of treasures, of the scientists and researchers who traveled to the far corners of the earth to uncover them, stories of the treasures themselves. Mr. Neal has chosen from the small fraction of exhibits open to the public as well as from those behind the scenes to tell their stories and to describe the work of the specialists who maintain them. A book to enhance any forthcoming trip to the Smithsonian, to crystallize any previous trip, or to make possible a vicarious one.
