I read this story the first time in the 80s and again just recently. I still found it a tale that was magical and magnificent.

A 20th century scientist, Ulysses Singing Bear, is frozen into a indestructible statue for 20million years. When he is finally thawed he finds a world that is long changed and populated by the evolved descendants of today's animals. Worshipped as a god, will Ulysses find what happened to the human race, will he be able to use his knowledge of the 20th century to save his new friends, and will he find a home in a world that is so alien to him?

There's action and adventure, love (okay, unrequited attraction then), suspense, betrayal and resolution. I loved this book, and will stick it back on the shelf for when i read it the next time!
