Dinosaurs to Dung Beetles relates the stories behind the exhibits and collections of the Sternberg Museum of Natural History, providing deeper meaning to almost every aspect displayed, modeled, and painted. Over 100 figures and pictures enhance the reader's journey through the 330 million years of history that makeup the museum--from the Kansas sea to the wild West, through formative years of North American paleontology and the concept of biological evolution, to the development of an important research and exhibit facility at Fort Hays State University.
Readers learn about the early days of fossil collecting in the west, the role that the Sternberg family played in developing the science of paleontology, as well as many facts on a wide range of prehistoric animals. This book is an enjoyable exploration of fossils, paleontology, and the history of a museum.
