We live in a golden age of paleontological discovery-the perfect time to dig into the spectacular world of dinosaurs. From Aardonyx, a lumbering beast that formed a link between two and four-legged dinosaurs, to Zuniceratops, who boasted a deadly pair of horns, Dinosaurs: The Grand Tour details everything worth knowing about every important dinosaur that scientists know about-more than 300 in all.

In Dinosaurs you'll learn all the gory details-about geology, anatomy, evolution, astronomy, and even Native American and Chinese mythology. Stories of harrowing paleontological expeditions conjure the thrills of history's most famous dinosaur hunters. Highlights of recent research reveal what's going on in the world of dinosaurs today, including scientists' recent discovery of pigments embedded in dinosaur fossils that shed light, for the first time on dinosaurs' true coloration. Illustrations on virtually every page bring these prehistoric creatures to life in all their razor-sharp, long-necked, spiny, scaly glory. It's a dino-mite gathering of all the dinosaurs (more than 300!) worth knowing about.
