We’ll be discussing: The Bonehunters’ Revenge by David Rains Wallace
When dinosaur fossils were first discovered in the Wild West, they sparked one of the greatest scientific battles in American history. Over the past century it has been known by many names — the Bone War, the Fossil Feud — but the tragic story of the competition for fame and natural treasure between Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh, two leading paleontologists of the Gilded Age, remains prophetic of the conquest of the West as well as a watershed event in science.
Come with a few thoughts/ideas about the book to discuss!
About the Venue
