About this book

The so-called Bone Wars of the 1880s may have marked the introduction of dinosaurs to the American public, but the second Jurassic dinosaur rush, which took place around the turn of the twentieth century, brought the prehistoric beasts back to life. These later expeditions yielded specimens that would be reconstructed into the colossal skeletons that thrill visitors today in museum halls across the country.

Reconsidering the fossil speculation, the museum displays and the media frenzy that ushered dinosaurs into the American public consciousness, the author takes the reader back to the birth of dinomania and the modern obsession with all things Jurassic.

Media reviews

"In the years around 1900, major U.S. museums raced to find the best and biggest dinosaurs and put them on display. It was a decisive decade for paleontology, when the public first got a spectacular view of the strangeness of the prehistoric world, and dinomania first took off. Based on thorough archival research, this is a fascinating story of ambitious administrators and scientists, their moneyed patrons, and the often invisible technicians and fieldworkers on whom the whole project depended."
– Martin Rudwick, author of Worlds Before Adam and Bursting the Limits of Time
