Great book. The book is slow in the beggining and you need a little patience trying to figure the point of view when it switches between flashbacks and present day. Otherwise the story picks up after the villian is introduce. Another great book that showcases life on the prairie as seen through the recollections of a grandmother in her senior years and the probing question of her grandchildren. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0064403092, Paperback)

"All I want to find is one dinosaur," Daniel was saying. "And I'll find it right here. Like I do all my fossils." Wandering through the Natural History Museum with her grandchildren, Julia Creath feels the presence of her dead brother, Daniel, she remembers a time when fossil fever hit everyone, old and young -- a time when people would kill for those old bones under the ground. Julia becomes the Nebraska farm girl she once was, as she weaves together the story of the great dinosaur rush -- an adventurous tale of love and treachery, but most of all the story of her own childhood, and of the older brother she loved more than anything. Daniel had a dream that julia shared -- and the she alone would see come true.
