Summary
"Born in 1911 to an unconventional, free-spirited artist mother, and an eminent paleontologist father, Margaret Mathew chose a career as an artist specializing in restorations of extinct animals. She began her career in the American Museum of Natural History at New York City, drawing fossil bones, and there she met her husband, the noted paleontologist, Edwin (Ned) Colbert." "Charming the bones portrays Margaret's life as the wife of a famous man and the mother of five sons and, later in her life, as a respected restoration artist, illustrator, and sculptor." "Margaret's paintings, drawings, and sculptures grace museums worldwide, enabling the general public, as well as professional paleontologists, to visualize extinct creatures."--BOOK JACKET
