"This book will highlight a newly discovered T. rex relative in China with a coat of downy feathers! This one-ton predator is the largest known animal to ever have walked the Earth. This discovery was made public in April 2012, and is a timely addition that sets this book apart from other dinosaur titles. We'll meet 19 kinds of tyrannosaurs--including seven new species discovered in the last two years--that came before T. rex. The names are strange, like Bistahieversor and Zhuchengtyrannus. The creatures were strange, too, and many of the newly discovered ones caught scientists by surprise. Filled with engaging, lifelike illustrations by Xing Lida, Tracking Tyrannosaurs explains to kids how T. rex, the most famous, ferocious dinosaur of all time was only one of many tyrannosaurs that lived on Earth for over 100 million years!"--

Bury the dead : tombs, corpse, mummies, skeletons, and rituals by Christopher Sloan( )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 2,000 years ago, Chinese emperor Qin Shi Huang Di was laid to rest in a tomb guarded by thousands of life-size clay statues of warriors and horse-drawn chariots. Some 1,000 years earlier, the tombs of Chinese emperors were not guarded by clay figures, but by the dead bodies of humans and animals sacrificed for the cause. All over the world, different cultures have conducted an amazing array of intriguing burial practices. On the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, infants are buried in trees so that their spirits might rise up through the trunks toward heaven. Egyptian pyramids and mummification practices continue to fascinate archaeologists the world over. And near the Black Sea in the Ukraine, the tombs of the Amazons hold gold treasures of immeasurable worth. In Bury the Dead, National Geographic senior editor Christopher Sloan conducts a fascinating-and sometimes hair-raising-investigation of how societies around the globe have handled their dead
