From Library Journal:

Lakes (1844-1917), an Oxford University alumnus who taught geology at Colorado's School of Mines for more than 20 years, recorded in both words and sketches the discovery of major dinosaur fossils in the wilderness of Colorado and Wyoming between 1877 and 1880. Editor Kohl (special collections, Clemson Univ. Lib.) discovered Lakes's missing journals in the Smithsonian Institution Archives; along with McIntosh (emeritus, physics, Wesleyan Univ.), he aims here to bring the excitement of the discovery of dinosaur remains under rigorous conditions to the general reader of science. The text has been modernized, and maps and inset biographical summaries with portraits are used to clarify locations and persons mentioned in the journal entries. Some of Lakes's watercolors are included as well. Despite the editors' intention, the journals will appeal more to specialists than general readers, who will find John R. Horner and James Gorman's Digging Dinosaurs (LJ 1/89) more riveting and informative.?Edward K. Werner, St. Lucie Cty. Lib. System, Ft. Pierce, Fla.
