    1. (3.5) There were serious pacing and plot issues with this (WHY the start? It didn't really seem to add to the story development, and just limits the age audience) and I felt like great chunks could have been cut without sacrificing anything important - the net effect is that it feels like a book that couldn't make up its mind about its core story (paleontology wars? Native American woes? how to survive in the West?) but it was engaging and the actual bone wars bits made me possibly more interest [...]

    2. Another YA by this back memories of my intense childhood interest in paleontology.Overall, a disappointment. There were way too many characters. I found the Thaddeus character the more interesting perspective. The Julian perspective seemed to get in the way.However, a good education on how the "science" of paleontology was done in the early days.

    3. I remember reading this book in 7th grade and I have remembered it ever since. It was one of the very few times I got that intense magical feeling that one of the best books you will ever read comes along. I've never been particularly into dinosaurs or the West, but something about the story captured me and reading it was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Please give it a chance!

    4. I had been looking for this book for several months, if not longer. I could only remember a few details about it and thus, couldn't find it. Then I did!Interesting story about the start of paleontology in the US and the difference between academia and public. Set during Custer's Last Stand and other important Native American history, an interesting read.
