Publisher's Summary

A stunning debut in the blockbuster tradition of Jurassic Park - enhanced with dramatic sound effects.
A pair of fierce but beautiful eyes look out from the undergrowth of conifers. The eyes follow every movement in the great herd of plant-eating dinosaurs that mills around the open meadows, moving back and forth with the rapid scanning of a hunter who is thinking about everything she sees. She is an intelligent killer.
The time - 120 million years ago. The place - the plains of prehistoric Utah. The eyes belong to one of the most unforgettable heroines you will ever meet. Her name - Raptor Red.
Raptor Red is a female raptor dinosaur, struggling to survive on her own after losing her mate. Painting a rich and colorful picture of a lush prehistoric world, leading paleontologist Robert T. Bakker tells the story from within Raptor Red's extraordinary mind, dramatizing his groundbreaking theories in an exciting, one-of-a-kind tale. With keen insight and stunning authenticity, he tracks the raptor on her yearlong odyssey of survival as she braves a devastating storm, migrates toward the ocean to escape powerful predators, and heads north in a desperate attempt to escape the threat of deadly acrocanthosaurs, all while carrying out her natural duty to search for a new mate.
From its tragic opening to its thrilling climax on a snowy mountaintop, Raptor Red is a unique and utterly compelling look at a year in the life of a dinosaur - a revolutionary work of fiction.

why in the world is this abridged

this was one of my childhood favourites and indeed jump started my deep love of dinosaurs. I was ecstatic to find it on here and purchased it immediately, only to realize it was the abridged version. I'm so disappointed! this was a fantastic book in every aspect, there's really no reason the full version shouldn't be available.
