About this book

Unravelling the fascinating puzzle of who the Tyrannosaurus Rexes were and how they lived, Rex Appeal shares the amazing story of the uncovering and painstaking restoration of prehistory's most popular monster. Written by the most successful T. rex hunter in history, Rex Appeal tells how a crew without university grants or funding, even without PhDs, were able to buck the academic establishment and sometimes even the United States government and the FBI in the pursuit of discovery. Legal issues pertaining to the ownership of the finds are fully examined, as is the art, science, and high technology of creating the fantastic restored skeletons that are marvelled at in museums.
