In 2000, teenage dino-hunter Tyler Lyson stumbled across the fossil remains
of a hadrosaur in the remote hills of the Hell Creek Formation in North
Dakota. More than a collection of fossilized bones, Tyler discovered a
threedimensional mummified dinosaur—a dinomummy. He and a
paleontologist from the University of Manchester in England, Dr. Phil
Manning, led an
excavation that would change the way we think about dinosaurs. Named for
its place of discovery, "Dakota" was gradually uncovered and moved to a lab
for further excavation and analysis. Tyler and Phil's enthusiasm, expertise,
and years of work blend as this paleontological detective story unfolds.

Stunning computer-generated artwork, based on fieldwork and laboratory
studies of the hadrosaur specimen, brings Dakota and its environment back
to life on the pages of this amazing book. Travel back in time to explore
Hell Creek 65 million years ago, when herds of hadrosaurs migrated across
vast floodplains.

Dakota died during the Late Cretaceous Period on the floodplains of North
America and its body was locked in a rocky tomb. But Dakota's story was
far from over. From the rugged badlands of Hell Creek to high-tech
scientific labs, photographs document the incredible story of two men and
a very special dinosaur.
