The Ultimate Guide to Dinosaurs

Front Cover
Capstone, 2009 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 288 pages
From the earliest hunters and fish eaters to the Jurassic giants, this information-packed reference takes young fans on a fabulous visual tour of hundreds of kinds of dinosaurs. The fascination of these strange creatures is evoked in descriptions of where they lived, what they ate, how they cared for their young, and how they met their often violent deaths. Scientific theories about the ultimate extinction of dinosaurs are also presented, as are notes on archeology and paleontology that describe the earliest excavation of bones in the 19th century and the high-tech fossil digs going on today.
