Review

"Palaeontologist Lowell Dingus exhaustively tracks Hatcher’s short but storied life, from early work for luminaries such as Othniel Charles Marsh to the astounding digs in fossil hotspots from Kansas to Patagonia that studded Hatcher’s starry scientific trajectory.", Nature Magazine

"From a research associate at the American Museum of Natural History, an exhaustive biography of an adventurous bone hunter, a leading figure in the heroic age of American paleontology. There is no lack of fascinating anecdotes. Will interest paleontology buffs.", Kirkus Reviews

"Gives paleontology enthusiasts a sense of the challenges involved in 19th-century fossil hunting.", Publishers Weekly

"Readers learn of the great hardships of late-nineteenth-century paleontology and where to see Hatcher’s mounted dinosaurs today.", Booklist

"Fascinating. An excellent new science ­biography that will be popular with readers who already have an interest in paleontology or those who would like to develop one.", Library Journal

"Brilliant. A must-read for anyone interested in dinosaurs, natural history, or discovery.", Patch --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
