About this title

Synopsis:

In The Dinosaur Atlas, ?Dino? Don Lessem?renowned dinosaurexpert, award-winning children`s author, and advisor to the creators of Jurassic Park?offers an informative and humor-packed guide to prehistoric worlds and the bizarre creatures that walked, ate, fought and died there. The Dinosaur Atlas takes an up-close look at the amazing world?actually worlds?of an amazing array of dinosaurs. Dinosaurs ruled the earth for more than 150 million years. At first, dog-sized dinosaurs roamed the planet`s single warm landmass. Over time,that landmass split in two, and then into more continents. As the world changed, so did the dinosaurs. Bigger and stranger creatures dominated new lands, constantly adapting to changing environments from the forested South Pole to the swamps of what is now the Sahara. By the time the dinosaurs mysteriously died out, 65 million years ago, the continents looked much as they do today. Which fascinating creatures fit with what strange environments? When did the biggest dinosaur walk the earth? How did dinosaurs come to live from the Mongolian deserts to what was then polar Australia? And why did the dinosaur era come to an end? In a field crowded with encyclopedic examinations, The Atlas of Dinosuars fills a void, offering a unique, geographic approach to a timeless topic. Featuring beautiful full-colour maps, stunning illustrations and photographs from today`s dinosaur digs, The Atlas of Dinosuars will be a welcomeand informative addition to any dinosaur-lover`s bookshelf. (April 2003)
