From the author of I Bouight Andy Warhol comes this fascinating glimpse into the wild world of fossil collection. Polsky's seriously funny new book leads us into the South Dakota badlands where he discovers a lost tribe — the Boneheads — and becomes one of them. This oddball group of dinosaur hunters is intent on bagging the Holy Grail of the profession — a Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton.
