In the 1870s a wealth of fossil dinosaur and Jurassic mammal bones were uncovered at Como Bluff, Wyoming, the first major discovery of such remains in the world. O. C. Marsh, then paleontologist for Yale University's Peabody Museum, managed to finance and claim the greater portion of the excavations. He reunited the bones that were excavated and had lithographs made of them. This classic book, first published in 1966, recounts the trials, fortunes, and misfortunes behind the collection of the Como Bluff fossil bones and reproduces most of the lithographs.

This edition of the book includes a new foreword by Peter Dodson that places the discovery at Como Bluff -- as well as the book that describes it -- in historical perspective, and a historical overview by Clifford Miles and David Hamblin that presents the current state of work at this famous site.
