Format: Paperback
I have been partaking of a good, varied education. I savoured reading <b>Lisa Murphy-Lamb’s</b> publication because my spouse & I loved <i>Drumheller’s</i> museum and <i>Dinosaur National Park</i>. I anticipated being informed but didn’t fathom the excellent book this is! The best way I can convey its enjoyment and worth is to say historic dates, places, and scientific names are presented but that’s as far as expectations go. They are at a concise minimum and the stories of each palaeontologist so personalized; that we are treated to memorable, tangible stories instead of a textbook of jargon.

The researchers featured, who launched Canada’s very important position in palaeontology are: <i>George Dawson, Joseph B. Tyrrell, the Sternberg family,</i> and <i>Philip Currie</i>. We glimpse their family backgrounds and fully understand why they embarked on the careers they did and why their successes were important. We cheer their discoveries, understand their determined work, and what a treasure each fossil is because we followed them as individuals fulfilling an ambition. More than all of this, readers are elucidated about Canada’s history. This carries a sense of pride into the reading experience in concert with the knowledge acquired, that feels wonderfully enriching.

The first dinosaur discoverer, <i>George Dawson</i> is our first map-maker too. Maps bear his name; streets, towns named after him: in our town, all the way to the Yukon! I’ve learned the key fragments about the palaeontologists’ lives and how rare their discoveries are. Like any country, Canada is home to distinct dinosaurs and many, the most intact in the world. The next time I visit a museum, I will no longer gaze generally through its rooms. I will examine pieces thoughtfully, especially living fossils; knowing the work it took to unearth each one and bring them to places where they are shown to us.
