"This illustrated volume is a journey through more than two centuries of remarkable discovery. Books on dinosaurs are usually arranged by classification or epoch, but this unique work tells the story chronologically, in order of the key finds that shaped our understanding and brought these creatures to life for the public. From the fragmentary remains of giant extinct animals found in the early 1800s, to the dinosaur wars in the American West to the amazing near-complete skeletons found around the world today, Darren Naish tells how these discoveries have led not only to the recognition of new species and whole new groups, but also to new theories of evolutionary history."--Jacket

Around 250 million years ago dinosaurs first began to walk the earth, dominating the planet until their extinction 65 million years ago. In this incredible Mesozoic period lasting 170 million years, these creatures were the dominant animals on land. Walking with Dinosaurs-The Evidence explores the archeologists' and scientists' discoveries and shows how they piece together the lives of these fascinating creatures.
