    The Dinosaur Artist: Obsession, Betrayal, and the Quest for Earth's Ultimate Trophy wasn't quite the book I expected, but Paige Williams weaves an interesting exposť of the legal quagmire that is fossil collecting. As a dinosaur fanatic and amateur fossil hunter, I was fascinated -...

    As the aunt of 6 year old ?future paleontologist?, I have learned a good deal about dinosaurs and fossils in the last couple years. I have been looking forward all summer to reading The Dinosaur Artist, a well-researched narrative journalistic book about the controversy surrounding...

    Williams is a marvelous writer of paragraphs, and even of chapters: She beautifully captures scenes and characters and issues and history, and her prose sparkles. Nearly any reader will be fascinated by the issues that The Dinosaur Artist raises. And yet the book doesn't quite hold tog...

    The Dinosaur Hunter starts with controversy then maps the geography of the fossil landscape, from hunters to politics to jealousies and poachers. Williams covers the history of paleontology as well that of natural history museums. There?s even some celebrity sighting: a Cage/ DiCapri...

    The Dinosaur Artist is a tale that has everything: passion, science, politics, intrigue, and, of course, dinosaurs. Paige Williams is a wonderful storyteller. Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer-Prize-Winning Author of The Sixth Extinction What a terrific book. A fascinating story ...

    Anyone who knows me even a little bit knows that I love dinosaurs, so when I received a copy of The Dinosaur Artist: Obsession, Betrayal and the Quest for Earth's Ultimate Trophy, by Paige Williams, I was ecstatic. This book contained so many things that I like: dinosaurs, journalism, ...

    Did you have a dinosaur phase? If you?ve ever stared at a giant dino skeleton in a museum (or uh, watched Jurassic Park) and had your imagination piqued, think about cracking open THE DINOSAUR ARTIST by Paige Williams, out today from Hachette Books. In telling the story of a singl...

    When I saw this book, I knew I had to read it. I have always been fascinated with dinosaurs. This is a story of Eric Prokopi who was a fossil hunter and dealer. He started looking for fossils when he was just a kid, As he got older, he found there was big money to be made selling all m...

    This book is a true tragedy. There's an awesome story to be told and, eventually, that story is told. There's just way too much extraneous information included in this book to make it worth recommending. To say that it moves slowly is to say that dinosaurs lived a long time ago. Jus...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book on #paleodrama of T. Bataar and Mongolian dinosaurs. This book manages to tell a gripping real story as well as provide a solid layman?s history to the paleontologists behind it. Having just come back from a trip to Mongolia and UB I visited the Din...

    The Dinosaur Artist is a nice work about, broadly, paleontology, dinosaur paleontology more specifically. It concentrates on the story of Eric Prokopi and the illicit trade in Mongolian dinosaur fossils. For me, the best part of the narrative was the section on Molly (Mary) Anning an...

    Absolutely riveting.... as I read it I became more fascinated with the personalities of the paleontologist Williams profiles. There are parts that made my jaw drop such as reading about Mark Norrell?s desk, it belonged to Barnum Brown, now that is just awesome. I couldn?t put it do...

    What a fantastic and intriguing book! One of the best reads for fall 2018! ...

    What an interesting story! ...

    Great read for anyone interested in the science of paleontology, the business of fossils or is just looking for an entertaining narrative true story with a bit of intrigue. ...

    The world of fossil collecting is far more competitive and far less legal than I ever thought. Paige William?s new novel follows eponymous title artist Eric Prokopi from his humble Florida beginnings through to smuggling fossils out of Mongolia and attempting to sell them in New Y...

    I received an advanced reading copy courtesy of Hachette and NetGalley. Thanks! This was a great read. The story of a man who was prosecuted for illegally selling a dinosaur skeleton that originated in Mongolia, Williams does a great job of explaining the history of paleontology and...

    I requested The Dinosaur Artist because I was that kid that watched Jurassic Park repeatedly and told my first grade teacher that I wanted to be a singer and a paleontologist. There was not a doubt in my mind that I was going to love this book. Unfortunately, it fell a bit flat for me....

    Who "owns" fossils? Who has a right to search for, prepare, and sell pieces of history? In The Dinosaur Artist, Paige Williams does a fantastic job of taking an enormous topic and whittling it down to compelling narrative non-fiction. I knew nothing about the conflict between scientist...

    Very enjoyable book, along the lines of orchid thief. Through this one man?s story, you get introduced not only to the science of paleontology, but also to a world of international politics and a cast of passionate if sometimes morally questionable characters. The wife who works as a...

    Cool insight into the world of fossil hunting, trading and selling. Especially in the dino digging hot zone of Mongolia. Had no idea how many regulations have been changed or adopted in just the past few years. If you?re into this stuff, I?d recommend it. The ?true crime? buzzw...

    Interesting story but the dinosaur that was stolen is just a set piece. I know enough about Tarbosaurus to know why it is cool, but a bit more background on the dinosaurs of the Gobi would have been nice. ...

    Who "owns" fossils? Who has a right to search for, prepare, and sell pieces of history? In The Dinosaur Artist, Paige Williams does a fantastic job of taking an enormous topic and whittling it down to compelling narrative non-fiction. I knew nothing about the conflict between scientist...

    Very enjoyable book, along the lines of orchid thief. Through this one man?s story, you get introduced not only to the science of paleontology, but also to a world of international politics and a cast of passionate if sometimes morally questionable characters. The wife who works as a...

    Cool insight into the world of fossil hunting, trading and selling. Especially in the dino digging hot zone of Mongolia. Had no idea how many regulations have been changed or adopted in just the past few years. If you?re into this stuff, I?d recommend it. The ?true crime? buzzw...

    Interesting story but the dinosaur that was stolen is just a set piece. I know enough about Tarbosaurus to know why it is cool, but a bit more background on the dinosaurs of the Gobi would have been nice. ...

    An excellent book. Williams weaves history, politics, and of course dinosaurs together in a seamless page-turner. ...

    Entertaining and brings some high stakes to the fossil world. ...

    The Dinosaur Artist: Obsession, Betrayal, and the Quest for Earth's Ultimate Trophy wasn't quite the book I expected, but Paige Williams weaves an interesting exposť of the legal quagmire that is fossil collecting. As a dinosaur fanatic and amateur fossil hunter, I was fascinated -...

    As the aunt of 6 year old ?future paleontologist?, I have learned a good deal about dinosaurs and fossils in the last couple years. I have been looking forward all summer to reading The Dinosaur Artist, a well-researched narrative journalistic book about the controversy surrounding...

    Williams is a marvelous writer of paragraphs, and even of chapters: She beautifully captures scenes and characters and issues and history, and her prose sparkles. Nearly any reader will be fascinated by the issues that The Dinosaur Artist raises. And yet the book doesn't quite hold tog...

    The Dinosaur Hunter starts with controversy then maps the geography of the fossil landscape, from hunters to politics to jealousies and poachers. Williams covers the history of paleontology as well that of natural history museums. There?s even some celebrity sighting: a Cage/ DiCapri...

    The Dinosaur Artist is a tale that has everything: passion, science, politics, intrigue, and, of course, dinosaurs. Paige Williams is a wonderful storyteller. Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer-Prize-Winning Author of The Sixth Extinction What a terrific book. A fascinating story ...

    Anyone who knows me even a little bit knows that I love dinosaurs, so when I received a copy of The Dinosaur Artist: Obsession, Betrayal and the Quest for Earth's Ultimate Trophy, by Paige Williams, I was ecstatic. This book contained so many things that I like: dinosaurs, journalism, ...

    Did you have a dinosaur phase? If you?ve ever stared at a giant dino skeleton in a museum (or uh, watched Jurassic Park) and had your imagination piqued, think about cracking open THE DINOSAUR ARTIST by Paige Williams, out today from Hachette Books. In telling the story of a singl...

    When I saw this book, I knew I had to read it. I have always been fascinated with dinosaurs. This is a story of Eric Prokopi who was a fossil hunter and dealer. He started looking for fossils when he was just a kid, As he got older, he found there was big money to be made selling all m...

    This book is a true tragedy. There's an awesome story to be told and, eventually, that story is told. There's just way too much extraneous information included in this book to make it worth recommending. To say that it moves slowly is to say that dinosaurs lived a long time ago. Jus...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book on #paleodrama of T. Bataar and Mongolian dinosaurs. This book manages to tell a gripping real story as well as provide a solid layman?s history to the paleontologists behind it. Having just come back from a trip to Mongolia and UB I visited the Din...

    The Dinosaur Artist is a nice work about, broadly, paleontology, dinosaur paleontology more specifically. It concentrates on the story of Eric Prokopi and the illicit trade in Mongolian dinosaur fossils. For me, the best part of the narrative was the section on Molly (Mary) Anning an...

    Absolutely riveting.... as I read it I became more fascinated with the personalities of the paleontologist Williams profiles. There are parts that made my jaw drop such as reading about Mark Norrell?s desk, it belonged to Barnum Brown, now that is just awesome. I couldn?t put it do...

    What a fantastic and intriguing book! One of the best reads for fall 2018! ...

    What an interesting story! ...

    Great read for anyone interested in the science of paleontology, the business of fossils or is just looking for an entertaining narrative true story with a bit of intrigue. ...

    The world of fossil collecting is far more competitive and far less legal than I ever thought. Paige William?s new novel follows eponymous title artist Eric Prokopi from his humble Florida beginnings through to smuggling fossils out of Mongolia and attempting to sell them in New Y...

    The Dinosaur Artist is a tale that has everything: passion, science, politics, intrigue, and, of course, dinosaurs. Paige Williams is a wonderful storyteller. Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer-Prize-Winning Author of The Sixth Extinction What a terrific book. A fascinating story ...

    Anyone who knows me even a little bit knows that I love dinosaurs, so when I received a copy of The Dinosaur Artist: Obsession, Betrayal and the Quest for Earth's Ultimate Trophy, by Paige Williams, I was ecstatic. This book contained so many things that I like: dinosaurs, journalism, ...

    Did you have a dinosaur phase? If you?ve ever stared at a giant dino skeleton in a museum (or uh, watched Jurassic Park) and had your imagination piqued, think about cracking open THE DINOSAUR ARTIST by Paige Williams, out today from Hachette Books. In telling the story of a singl...

    When I saw this book, I knew I had to read it. I have always been fascinated with dinosaurs. This is a story of Eric Prokopi who was a fossil hunter and dealer. He started looking for fossils when he was just a kid, As he got older, he found there was big money to be made selling all m...

    This book is a true tragedy. There's an awesome story to be told and, eventually, that story is told. There's just way too much extraneous information included in this book to make it worth recommending. To say that it moves slowly is to say that dinosaurs lived a long time ago. Jus...

    Absolutely riveting.... as I read it I became more fascinated with the personalities of the paleontologist Williams profiles. There are parts that made my jaw drop such as reading about Mark Norrell?s desk, it belonged to Barnum Brown, now that is just awesome. I couldn?t put it do...

    Great read for anyone interested in the science of paleontology, the business of fossils or is just looking for an entertaining narrative true story with a bit of intrigue. ...

    The world of fossil collecting is far more competitive and far less legal than I ever thought. Paige William?s new novel follows eponymous title artist Eric Prokopi from his humble Florida beginnings through to smuggling fossils out of Mongolia and attempting to sell them in New Y...

    I received an advanced reading copy courtesy of Hachette and NetGalley. Thanks! This was a great read. The story of a man who was prosecuted for illegally selling a dinosaur skeleton that originated in Mongolia, Williams does a great job of explaining the history of paleontology and...

    I requested The Dinosaur Artist because I was that kid that watched Jurassic Park repeatedly and told my first grade teacher that I wanted to be a singer and a paleontologist. There was not a doubt in my mind that I was going to love this book. Unfortunately, it fell a bit flat for me....

    Who "owns" fossils? Who has a right to search for, prepare, and sell pieces of history? In The Dinosaur Artist, Paige Williams does a fantastic job of taking an enormous topic and whittling it down to compelling narrative non-fiction. I knew nothing about the conflict between scientist...

    Who "owns" fossils? Who has a right to search for, prepare, and sell pieces of history? In The Dinosaur Artist, Paige Williams does a fantastic job of taking an enormous topic and whittling it down to compelling narrative non-fiction. I knew nothing about the conflict between scientist...

    Very enjoyable book, along the lines of orchid thief. Through this one man?s story, you get introduced not only to the science of paleontology, but also to a world of international politics and a cast of passionate if sometimes morally questionable characters. The wife who works as a...

    Cool insight into the world of fossil hunting, trading and selling. Especially in the dino digging hot zone of Mongolia. Had no idea how many regulations have been changed or adopted in just the past few years. If you?re into this stuff, I?d recommend it. The ?true crime? buzzw...

    Interesting story but the dinosaur that was stolen is just a set piece. I know enough about Tarbosaurus to know why it is cool, but a bit more background on the dinosaurs of the Gobi would have been nice. ...

    An excellent book. Williams weaves history, politics, and of course dinosaurs together in a seamless page-turner. ...

    Entertaining and brings some high stakes to the fossil world. ...

    The Dinosaur Artist: Obsession, Betrayal, and the Quest for Earth's Ultimate Trophy wasn't quite the book I expected, but Paige Williams weaves an interesting exposť of the legal quagmire that is fossil collecting. As a dinosaur fanatic and amateur fossil hunter, I was fascinated -...

    As the aunt of 6 year old ?future paleontologist?, I have learned a good deal about dinosaurs and fossils in the last couple years. I have been looking forward all summer to reading The Dinosaur Artist, a well-researched narrative journalistic book about the controversy surrounding...

    Williams is a marvelous writer of paragraphs, and even of chapters: She beautifully captures scenes and characters and issues and history, and her prose sparkles. Nearly any reader will be fascinated by the issues that The Dinosaur Artist raises. And yet the book doesn't quite hold tog...

    The Dinosaur Hunter starts with controversy then maps the geography of the fossil landscape, from hunters to politics to jealousies and poachers. Williams covers the history of paleontology as well that of natural history museums. There?s even some celebrity sighting: a Cage/ DiCapri...

    The Dinosaur Artist is a tale that has everything: passion, science, politics, intrigue, and, of course, dinosaurs. Paige Williams is a wonderful storyteller. Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer-Prize-Winning Author of The Sixth Extinction What a terrific book. A fascinating story ...

    Anyone who knows me even a little bit knows that I love dinosaurs, so when I received a copy of The Dinosaur Artist: Obsession, Betrayal and the Quest for Earth's Ultimate Trophy, by Paige Williams, I was ecstatic. This book contained so many things that I like: dinosaurs, journalism, ...

    Did you have a dinosaur phase? If you?ve ever stared at a giant dino skeleton in a museum (or uh, watched Jurassic Park) and had your imagination piqued, think about cracking open THE DINOSAUR ARTIST by Paige Williams, out today from Hachette Books. In telling the story of a singl...

    When I saw this book, I knew I had to read it. I have always been fascinated with dinosaurs. This is a story of Eric Prokopi who was a fossil hunter and dealer. He started looking for fossils when he was just a kid, As he got older, he found there was big money to be made selling all m...

    This book is a true tragedy. There's an awesome story to be told and, eventually, that story is told. There's just way too much extraneous information included in this book to make it worth recommending. To say that it moves slowly is to say that dinosaurs lived a long time ago. Jus...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book on #paleodrama of T. Bataar and Mongolian dinosaurs. This book manages to tell a gripping real story as well as provide a solid layman?s history to the paleontologists behind it. Having just come back from a trip to Mongolia and UB I visited the Din...

    The Dinosaur Artist is a nice work about, broadly, paleontology, dinosaur paleontology more specifically. It concentrates on the story of Eric Prokopi and the illicit trade in Mongolian dinosaur fossils. For me, the best part of the narrative was the section on Molly (Mary) Anning an...

    Absolutely riveting.... as I read it I became more fascinated with the personalities of the paleontologist Williams profiles. There are parts that made my jaw drop such as reading about Mark Norrell?s desk, it belonged to Barnum Brown, now that is just awesome. I couldn?t put it do...

    What a fantastic and intriguing book! One of the best reads for fall 2018! ...
