Dragon Teeth

The year is 1876, and two monomaniacal paleontologists are pillaging the Wild West, hunting for dinosaur fossils, while surveilling, deceiving and sabotaging each other in a rivalry that will come to be known as the Bone Wars.

Into this treacherous territory plunges the arrogant and entitled William Johnson, a Yale student with more privilege than sense. Forced to join forces with one of the scientists, Johnson soon stumbles upon a discovery of historic proportions. With this extraordinary treasure, however, comes exceptional danger as he struggles to protect his cache, pitting him against some of the West’s most notorious characters.

A page-turner that draws on both meticulously researched history and an exuberant imagination, Dragon Teeth is based on the rivalry between real-life paleontologists Cope and Marsh. Perfectly paced and brilliantly plotted, this enormously winning adventure is another Crichton classic.
