Synopsis

Did you know that the first dinosaur fossil ever found in the United States was discovered in New Jersey? Or that the Great Plains used to be swarming with swimming sea monsters?

Complete with a timeline, a glossary, a bibliography, an index, and a list of museums and national parks, Dinosaurs in Your Backyard encourages young readers to imagine what their surroundings were like millions of years ago.
