Summary "From the dust of the Gilded Age Bone Wars, two vastly different men emerge to fill the empty halls of New York's struggling American Museum of Natural History: socialite Henry Fairfield Osborn and intrepid fossil hunter Barnum Brown. When Brown unearths the first Tyrannosaurus rex fossils, Osborn sees a path to save his museum from irrelevancy. As the public turns out in droves to cower before this bone-chilling giant of the past and wonder at the mysteries of its disappearance, Brown and Osborn turn dinosaurs into a beloved part of culture"-- Provided by publisher.
