About this book

Louis Jacobs reopened paleontologists' eyes to the African continent when he uncovered a major fossil site in the hills of Malawi in the 1980s. During five digging seasons in Malawi and three in Cameroon, Jacobs found the remains of two meat-eating theropods, two herbivorous sauropods, an odd crocodile about the size of a Chihuahua, and rare early mammals. Now in paperback, Quest for the African Dinosaurs includes Jacobs' new introduction, which discusses recent developments in paleontological research in Africa.

Media reviews

"A literary effort of real consequence, a book that informs and entertains, but at the same time is pleasing to the eye and to the ear [...] One closes Lou Jacobs' book with the wish that it did not have to come to an end [...] [because] one has been to Africa with Lou and surveyed the passing scene through his amused, discerning eye."
– Edwin H. Colbert, Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology
