Based on the acclaimed 4-part television series hosted by Walter Cronkite. The definitive account of the "terrible lizards" who roamed the earth 160 million years ago.

When it comes to books on dinosaurs, you can usually choose between collections blistered with pictures or weighty scientific tomes with too many words. That's why I really enjoyed this book, as it offers a tour of the Mesozoic age and its terrible lizards. There are enough illustrations (including one stunner showing the viewpoint of raptors trying to evade being stepped on by an enormous sauropod) to keep the reader interested and the text is outstanding.

Although everything we know about dinosaurs seems to change every decade, I still pop this volume open when I am looking for dinosaur answers. There be dragons here.

Book Season = Year Round
