Even when the pa­le­ob­otanist isn’t on the job, he goes hunt­ing for fos­sils, of­ten with his friend, the cel­e­brated artist Ray Troll. They chron­i­cled their re­cent jour­neys in Cruisin’ the Fos­sil Coast­line: The Trav­els of an Artist and a Sci­en­tist Along the Shores of the Pa­cific, ex­cerpted on Page 24. The book is based on trav­els that John­son, the di­rec­tor of Smith­so­nian’s Na­tional Mu­seum of Nat­u­ral His­tory, com­pleted be­fore he came to Wash­ing­ton, D.C.
