Many of us have seen dinosaur bones and skeletons, maybe even dinosaur eggs, but what did those fearsome animals really look like in the flesh?

In this exciting book, paleontologist Phillip Manning presents the most astonishing dinosaur fossil excavations of the past 100 years, including the recent discovery of a remarkably intact dinosaur mummy in the Badlands of North Dakota..

The knowledge to be gained from this exceedingly rare find, and those that came before it, will intrigue dinosaur-loving readers of all ages.

Press Quotes

"...the science is solid and well explained, the people are vivid and real, the adventures are well chosen and the story is well told. Read and enjoy."—New Scientist

"What do the people who dig up dinosaurs actually do? That is part of what we learn in this deliciously geeky account of the discovery in 1999 and subsequent investigation of a fossilised hadrosaur named Dakota."—The Guardian

"Phillip Manning…has stitched together a very readable account…the book is a little more complex than [the] television documentary but potentially rewarding for the reader looking for more than a quick glance into the world of the dinosaurs."—The Roanoke Times
