250,000,003 years in the making!
Bone Sharps, Cowboys, and Thunder Lizards tells the story of Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh, two scientists who found and fought for the fossil treasures discovered in the American west in the late 1800s. It also introduces the young artist Charles R. Knight, who almost single-handedly brought dinosaurs back to life for an awestruck public. Bone Sharps... features plenty of guest stars as well, including Chief Red Cloud & hundreds of his braves, the gun-totiní & gambliní Professor John Bell Hatcher, colossal & stupefying Dinosauria of the New World, and special appearances by the Cardiff Giant, P.T. Barnum, Buffalo Bill Cody, Ulysses S. Grant, Alexander Graham Bell, and a plentiful supporting cast of rogues & gallants from the eastern scientific establishment and the old west.
Jim Ottaviani and Big Time Attic (Zander Cannon, Shad Petosky and Kevin Cannon), under a cover by Mark Schultz, have mixed of art, science, cowboys and dinosaurs in a book that offers a rich blend of history, adventure, science, and art. Bone Sharps, Cowboys, and Thunder Lizards is a tale of greed and imagination, discovery and loss. And, not that it matters all that much, but just about everything youíll read in it is true!
