About the book:

John R. Horner, one of the world's foremost paleontologists, chronicles his seven-year paleontological investigation that eventually demonstrated that species of dinosaurs raised their young and lived in herds. Armed with barely more than a shovel, a friend, and a case of beer, Horner discovered the first large-scale concentrations of baby dinosaur fossils and nests. Along the way, Horner explains the scientific underpinning of his discoveries - from stratigraphy to histology - in a way that draws the reader into the excitement of scientific discovery. Although the thrill of fieldwork is convincingly evoked, what becomes equally fascinating to the reader is Horner's analysis of the finds-the work that leads to his revolutionary conclusions about dinosaur behavior.
