Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Offering the most comprehensive and up-to-date review of fossil footprints, for both dinosaurs and other vertebrates, in the western United States, "Dinosaur Tracks" covers the fossil record from the Paleozoic through the Cenozoic era.

Book News Annotation:

Geared toward the more serious amateur (i.e. students and general readers who aren't afraid of Latin names), this popular guide describes how to observe and record fossil footprints, then takes dinosaur enthusiasts, rockhounds, and vacationers on a tour of tracks and trackways in the western US. Lockley (geology, U. of Colorado) and Hunt (director, Mesalands Dinosaur Museum) focus on the Colorado Plateau region, detailing the fossil track record from the Paleozoic Era through our modern Cenozoic Era.
