It’s the summer of 1988 and 15-year-old aspiring artist Adam Zapotica has a big problem. He’s crazy about dinosaurs, and a team of paleontologists and scientists at Milk River Ridge near Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park in southern Alberta has recently unearthed a major cache of dinosaur eggs. They need volunteers to assist them at the dig, but there’s a catch — you have to be 18!

Adam soon figures a way to get around that, and faster than a raptor the Calgary youth finds himself part of the dinosaur crew and knee-deep in intrigue and romance, especially after he meets Jamie, the teenaged daughter of the camp’s boss.

Someone is stealing fossils, and the suspects are almost as numerous as the dinosaur experts toiling amid the hoodoos and coulees. Adam and Jamie are determined to get to the bottom of the pilfering, but dinosaurs are big business and the danger could be deadly.
