Synopsis

Synopsis

Drawing on new breakthroughs and cutting edge techniques to scan and analyze this rare and remarkable discovery, Dr. Manning takes us on a thrilling, globe-spanning tour of dinosaur mummy finds—from the first such excavation in 1908 to a baby dinosaur unearthed in 1980, from a dino with a heart in South Dakota to titanosaur embryos in Argentina. And he discusses his own groundbreaking analysis of Dakota that will intrigue dinosaur loving readers of all ages.

"...deliciously geeky account of the discovery in 1999 and subsequent investigation of a fossilized hadrosaur named Dakota."— The Guardian

"Phillip Manning has stitched together a very readable account rewarding for the reader looking for more than a quick glance into the world of the dinosaurs." — The Roanoke Times
