User Review  - AquilaLorelei - LibraryThing

One of the two seminal books of my childhood, along with D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Mythology. Still holds up well, science-wise. Part of the body of work that put me on my career path of paleontology. Get a hold of a copy i8f you can if you have a love of dinosaurs. Read full review
