Ten different species of Jurassic dinosaurs were excavated from the Utah site, which became Dinosaur National Monument in 1915. Descriptions and illustrations of dinosaurs highlighted in the book. Map and further information about Dinosaur National Monument. Author's Note. Brief biographies of Earl Douglass and Andrew Carnegie. Glossary. Bibliography. Black-and-white photo.
