A FANTASTIC NEW VIEW OF A LOST ERA
Here are dinosaurs as you've never seen them before in a dramatically expanded new edition of the book that started the renaissance in dinosaur books. Here are dinosaurs that are swift, stunning, scary and stupendous, presented in a lavish format. Using the latest paleontological research, The New Dinosaurs presents a scientifically accurate look at the way dinosaurs lived: how they moved, ate, dueled, drank and mated. From ten-ton brontosaurus to thirty-foot hadrosaurus, here is a story more fantastic than fantasy itself!
The Dinosaurs -- A Fantastic New View of a Lost Era, by William Stout, with narration by the late William Service, is considered to be a classic in illustrated naturalist books. Featured in Life magazine, it helped spark the worldwide interest in dinosaurs that culminated in Jurrasic Park.
William Stout's prehistoric life murals are on permanent display at the Houston Museum of Natural Sciences and at Walt Disney's Animal Kingdom. William Service was the author of Owl, which Time magazine called, "one of the most elegant and perceptive pieces of natural writing." Edited by Byron Preiss.
