Publisher's Summary

At the height of the American Wild West, two friends and scientific colleagues went to war. Each scrambled to out-wit and out-discover the other in a race to unearth the skeletal remains of dozens of previously undiscovered species of dinosaurs. What began with spying, bribery, and theft, quickly exploded into a bitter feud involving hired gunfighters, secret deals, and sticks of dynamite. Scientist-adventurers Edward Cope and O.C. Marsh inadvertently unleashed "dinosaur fever" across the globe, and their amazing discoveries became the subject of bidding wars by universities, museums, and even the great showman P.T. Barnum. Their story has never been told, until now.

Interesting Discovery/Old West Story

With the feel of an old timer tall tale, the feud between 2 scientists is told. I'm not a fan of old west stories but the narrator did a good job helping to keep me interested.

I assume this is a first effort

Not as good as I had hoped. There is every Wild West cliche you could imagine, stagecoach robbery, bar fights, Indian fights, gun fights, kidnapped damsels in distress.

I liked it well enough to finish it.
