Book Summary

The Dinosaur Hunters tells the story of our discovery of dinosaurs, from the eighteenth-century interest in sea dragons to present day work with DNA, through the men and women who dedicated their lives to furthering our knowledge. Through the inclusion of 15 facsimile documents, rare photographs and maps, you can travel the world and the centuries. You will relive the discovery of the first confirmed dinosaur relic, uncover feathers from an Archaeopteryx with Christian Erich Hermann von Meyer, go on an expedition to the Gobi Desert with Roy Chapman Andrews, and analyze the Sinornithosaurus with Ji Qiang and Ju Shu-An.
