Dinosaurs With Feathers
The Ancestors of Modern BirdsBook - 2001
In this comprehensive and impeccably researched book, award-winning nonfiction author Caroline Arnold explores a growing body of fossil evidence that reveals that dinosaurs were the ancient ancestors of birds. Many scientists have long believed that dinosaurs and birds were related, because of their numerous shared characteristics. But it is the most recent findings--of dinosaurs with feathers--that have finally cemented the bird-dinosaur connection. Illustrated with detailed watercolors, this book presents new and old evidence of how these ancient creatures are related to modern birds. It will convince all readers that at least one branch of the dinosaur family tree is not extinct but, in fact, alive and well--and flying.
