We received unbound copies of several children's books at TLA (I actually ended up with 2 copies of this title [giving one to HAWL Library and planning to actually bind one]). This is a beautiful and well written biography of Earl Douglas. A treasure.

FROM AMAZON: Earl Douglass was a teenager when he first heard about the Bone Wars―the frenzied race between paleontologists to unearth and classify dinosaur fossils―and he remained fascinated with these prehistoric giants for the rest of his life. As a geologist and botanist working at the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Douglass had a hunch that the vast untouched rock strata in northeastern Utah just may have been a haven for Jurassic fossil beds. In 1908, he set out by mule team to the Uinta Basin to dig and discover. Find me "something big," Andrew Carnegie instructed.

Little did Carnegie know exactly how well Douglass would heed those words. Sixteen years and 350 tons of fossils later, Earl Douglass emerged as one of the most prolific and successful dinosaur hunters of his time.

Using entries directly from Douglass's diary along with her own evocative storytelling and artwork, acclaimed author and illustrator Deborah Kogan Ray paints the life of this adventurous bone hunter in memorable detail.

A precious book about a loving and supportive family, embracing the arts in daily life. A must for familes nuturing young artists.

It reminds me very much of my daughter would would creep downstairs to draw in the dark of night. Drawing, drawing all the time.

This is a bittersweet book, and should be read with a discussion time included.

Really interesting story about a little-known theory and voyage.

Note: I received a digital review copy through NetGalley.

This is a cool book about the finding the great cache of bones out in Utah. It's a nice story about real life, history and the work of one man who worked to not only further the study of dinosaurs, but also preserve them. Great fun read!
