Given that this is a gift from beyond the grave (manuscript found after Crichton’s death), it is an enjoyable treat. Some tougher editing would have tightened up the plot, but it was a good story, fast-paced and interesting, based on a lot of reality with a dash of fiction, as early fossil hunting caught the nation’s interest in the Midwest in the last quarter of the 1800s. Definitely pick this one up!
