|Plot Summary of No Bone Unturned|
|"Doug Owsley was interested in old bones. In 1962, as a youngster he discovered the skeleton of a horse, carted it home and completely reconstructed it. This accomplishment, rather than satisfy a youthful curiosity, served to fuel it into the future. Some ten years later, Owsley was an anthropology student at the University of Wyoming. Before graduating he was making his own discoveries, some that more experienced anthropologist had repeatedly overlooked.
His work took him to numerous countries as he assisted in solving missing person and murder crimes. Owsley was called to Waco, Texas to identify mangled bodies and body parts. In 1996, Owsley was contacted concerning the discovery in Washington State of the ‘Kennewick Man' skeleton. It became a legal tug of war between local Indian tribes, the United States Government, and numerous dedicated anthropologist led by Doug Owsley.
