Review of Bone Voyage: A Journey in Forensic Anthropology
Bone Voyage: A Journey in Forensic Anthropology, is published on the heels of biographical and semi- autobiographical accounts of forensic anthropologists Clyde Collins Snow (I), Douglas Ubelaker (2) and, William Maples (3). It is singularly different from these volumes. With the exception of the 1980 New Mexico Prison Riot, Bon Voyage is not a tale of high profile cases, but the nuts and bolts, cases seen by the majority of forensic anthropologists. In Rhine'B words, cases that “… bristle with instructive examples to be plucked like so many feathers from a chicken.” The volume consists of 10 chapters and numerous photos and is also accompanied by drawings from Rhine's own forensic reports.
