Essential reading for Dinosaur fans...,
This review is from: The Dinosaur Hunters: A True Story of Scientific Rivalry and the Discovery of the Prehistoric World (Text Only Edition) (Kindle Edition)
If, like me, you have kept your childhood wonder about those magnicent beasts then this book is what you are looking for.
The stories and people involved in early dinosaur discoveries during the 1800s are really compelling.
The woes that befall poor Gideon Mantell are heart breaking or the villainy of Richard Owen are real page turners.
Cadbury has managed to craft an intelligent and well research history books which upon finishing made me want to dash off to Lyme Regis or to the Natural History museum to see the places and discoveries for myself. I will now see them in a much brighter light.
