Originally published in 1966, this is a new updated edition describing the discovery and analysis of one of the largest assemblages of dinosaur and Jurassic mammal fossils in 1896. Since the first publication, further excavation has taken place at Como Bluff, Wyoming, which has produced new discoveries that hint at what still may be buried there. A detailed history of the excitements and disappointments of the long excavation campaign during the second half of the 19th century includes many extracts from letters, contemporary sketches and reproductions of most of the original lithographs. This is as much a history of palaeontology as it is a reappraisal of the fossil remains.
