Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"All I want to find is one dinosaur," Daniel was saying. "And I'll find it right here. Like I do all my fossils." Wandering through the Natural History Museum with her grandchildren, Julia Creath feels the presence of her dead brother, Daniel, she remembers a time when fossil fever hit everyone, old and young — a time when people would kill for those old bones under the ground. Julia becomes the Nebraska farm girl she once was, as she weaves together the story of the great dinosaur rush — an adventurous tale of love and treachery, but most of all the story of her own childhood, and of the older brother she loved more than anything. Daniel had a dream that julia shared — and the she alone would see come true.

Synopsis:

"An old woman tells her grandchildren how her beloved teenage brother was destroyed at the time of the frenzied hunt for dinosaur remains in Nebraska (before the turn of the century). Vivid description, deeply felt characterization, and a simple yet intricately crafted plot are all hallmarks of Conrad's narrative".--Booklist.

I loved this book so much. It was very interesting to
read because it kind of was full of flashbacks. I
thought Pam Conrad wrote this in a very good way. I
couldn't put the book down. It's one of my favorite
books. It's about a Girl named Julie who lives on a
farm in the 1800's. Her Brother Daniel finds Dinosaur
bones in a creek. I would highly recomend this book
to anyone who likes Dinosaurs and History.
