From Aardonyx to Zuniceratops--A Dino-Mite Gathering of All the Dinosaurs (More Than 300!) Worth Knowing About

We live in a golden age of paleontological discovery--the perfect time to dig in to the spectacular world of dinosaurs. From Aardonyx, a lumbering beast that formed a link between two and four-legged dinosaurs, to Zuniceratops, who boasted a deadly pair of horns, Dinosaurs--The Grand Tour details everything worth knowing about every important dinosaur that scientists know about--more than 300 in all.

In Dinosaurs you'll learn all the gory details--about geology, anatomy, evolution, astronomy, and even Native American and Chinese mythology. Stories of harrowing paleontological expeditions conjure the thrills of history's most famous dinosaur hunters. Highlights of recent research reveal what's going on in the world of dinosaurs today, including scientists' recent discovery of pigments embedded in dinosaur fossils that shed light, for the first time, on dinosaurs' true coloration. Illustrations on virtually every page bring these prehistoric creatures to life in all their razor-sharp, long-necked, spiny, scaly glory.

And for readers inspired to test their dino-expertise in the field, renowned paleontologist Jack Horner's field notes will help enthusiasts set out on their own expeditions. Track down dinosaur footprints at Horner's recommended sites, head out on a cross-country dinosaur road trip using Horner's list of top North American dinosaurs as your map, and learn what it's like to be a leading paleontologist who's been part of some of the most sensational dinosaur discoveries ever--and how you can get involved, too!

Very informative on some of the dinosaurs that have been found. Doesn't contain many illustrations mostly silhouettes. But, a fantastic read regardless.

Good info but disappointed it only had outlines, not that many illustrations and fewer full color pictures.
