The personal journals of Barnum Brown and J. P. Sams give not only an account of the scientific exploration for dinosaur bones, but also a view into Wyoming when it was still just a territory and cowboys, Indians, cavalry, dinosaur hunters, and oil explorers shared the plains at the same time. The journals are written in a way that is easy to follow and gives day-to-day accounts from the expedition back when finding bones was only a part of the adventure of a dinosaur hunt. This book is full of history and early-day insight, and is not just for dinosaur lovers. As new, unread copy, without dust jacket, as issued.
