‘An old woman tells her grandchildren how her beloved teenage brother was destroyed at the time of the frenzied hunt for dinosaur remains in Nebraska [before the turn of the century]. Vivid description, deeply felt characterization, and a simple yet intricately crafted plot are all hallmarks of Conrad’s narrative. A celebration of the bonds of love and the eloquence of the human spirit.’ —BL.
