Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

IN 1902, WILLIAM HORNADAY handed a map to the famous paleontologist Barnum Brown. It was Hornaday’s hand-drawn directions to a remote area of the Montana Badlands, where he believed amazing dinosaur fossils lay buried. Following the map, Brown dug up a jawbone edged with six-inch long teeth, the remains of a monstrous creature no one had ever seen before. But one bone wasn’t enough, and Brown soon found himself in a desperate race to discover the skeleton of the mystery carnivore!

Synopsis:

Tells the true story of the amazing dinosaur discovery of the first T-Rex in the Montana Badlands in the early 1900s after paleontologist Barnum Brown was given a hand-drawn map, dug up the teeth of the unknown creature, and kicked off a race to find its skeletal remains in order to introduce this massive creature to the world. Simultaneous.

Synopsis:

The story of dinosaur hunter Barnum Brown and his discovery of the first Tyrannosaurus rex for the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
