A True Story of DiscoveryBook - 2004
Daniel, eight, and Mark, 11, never expected that a day spent tubing down Flatbed Creek would turn into one of the most exciting dinosaur finds in the past 20 years. Take this "you are there" tour of Tumbler Ridge, British Columbia, where six "hollow spots" discovered by the two boys in 93-million-year-old rock led to the discovery of the longest dinosaur trackway in the province -- and a new direction in North American dinosaur research! Daniel's Dinosaurs follows the two boys as they work alongside dinosaur track expert Rich McCrea and world-famous paleontologist Dr. Philip Currie. Their discoveries have astounded them all. In the process of surveying and measuring the trackway, a dinosaur bone was discovered -- in rocks that are 93 million years old. Very little dinosaur bone has been found from this time period anywhere in the world. Further exploration of the site unearthed the province's first dinosaur skeleton -- almost definitely a new species! And even more research revealed not just a single skeleton, but a dinosaur bone bed. It's a book that will be treasured by children everywhere, both for its insight into cutting-edge dinosaur discovery and for the inspiring proof of what young people can achieve.
