Riassunto: Daniel, 8, and Mark, 11, never expect that a day spent tubing at Flatbed Creek will turn into one of the most exciting dinosaur finds in the past twenty years. But that's exactly what happens when they stumble upon impressions in the creek's shore that look a lot like dinosaur footprints.
After calling a local paleontologist, it becomes clear the boys have discovered something very important. As word of the boys' find spreads, it brings footprint expert Rich McCrea and world-renowned paleontologist Philip Currie, who are both anxious to examine the prints.
Daniel?s Dinosaurs follows Daniel as he works beside these dinosaur experts, surveying and measuring the trackway. In the process, numerous landmark discoveries are made, including a dinosaur bone in rocks that are 93 million years old. Further exploration of the site unearths the province?s first dinosaur skeleton, which is almost definitely a new species! Even more research reveals not just a single skeleton, but an entire dinosaur bone bed.
Most kids only dream of hunting dinosaurs. Daniel's vision and curiosity made his dream a real life adventure story. Daniel's story has been featured in Reader's Digest and on the Discovery Channel.
