The little dinosaurs of Ghost Ranch by Edwin H Colbert( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the strangest mysteries of the ancient past lies within a quarry in the American Southwest and concerns Coelophysis Bauri (Seel-O-Fise-Iss Bow-Ree), a carnivorous dinosaur that was no bigger than a large dog. More than a thousand fossilized remains of this animal have been found in a small area, and evidence suggests ten times that number may still be buried there. Why did so many of these little dinosaurs die in one place? Renowned paleontologist Edwin H. Colbert takes readers on a marvelous journey to search for answers in The Little Dinosaurs of Ghost Ranch. Colbert details the excavations that began nearly fifty years ago at Ghost Ranch, the quarry in Northern New Mexico where these fossils were discovered, and the 200-million-year-old prehistory of Coelophysis Bauri, an early predecessor of the giant dinosaurs with which most of us are familiar. Numerous photographs and illustrations, accompanied by George Colbert's detailed maps, chronicle the quest for the truth about Coelophysis. A color insert features the handsome panoramic paintings of Margaret Colbert, giving readers an excellent visual approximation of the prehistoric world

"From rural Missouri before World War I to the nuclear present, Edwin Colbert's life story is a saga of exploration and discovery. His search for the secrets revealed by fossils, particularly those of dinosaurs, crisscrossed North America and all the other continents. Along the way he courted and married Margaret Matthew (a talented paleontological artist), raised a family of five sons, taught such eminent scientists as Stephen Jay Gould (now of Harvard University) and John Ostrom (Yale University), wrote many books for the scholar and for the general reader, wrote and delivered hundreds of scientific papers, and today at age eighty-three continues his active personal and professional life."--Book Jacket
