A look at the important genera of North American dinosaurs, focusing on where they lived, what they ate, how they protected their young, who their predators were and how they died. Includes recreations of prehistoric North America and the species that lived there. First published in 1989 and easily the best book on dinosaurs yet available, Russell combines scholarship with beautiful colour illustrations in a study of dinosaur species in the ecological and physical environments in which they evolved and thrived. The book is the best of our current knowledge. 98 colour illustrations.
