The World of the Dinosaurs Revealed. The most beautiful book of the year for dinosaur lovers. An extraordinary new look at the prehistoric life of the dinosaurs by some of the world's foremost paleontologists, dinosaur illustrators and visionary authors. This unique collaboration produces a spectacular tour of the world of dinosaurs with vivid pictures, fascinating new ideas and thought-provoking tales by a dozen respected dreamers. A collaboration to excite the mind and dazzle the eye, probing such mysteries as: where the first dinosaurs appeared and how they evolved * how the giant sauropods lived and reared their young * hunting strategies among the predators * migratory habits and family life of the dinosaurs * possible causes of extinction * and much more...

The essays examine discoveries that are transforming the field of paleontology right now: Dinosaur fossils on the continent of Antarctica; pack hunting and cooperation among ferocious predators; evidence of seasonal migrations of herds of dinosaurs traveling thousands of miles to ancestral nesting grounds. These are just a few of the exciting new theories described in these pages.

In the short stories that follow each essay, highly imaginative fiction breathes life into scientific theory. In one story we ride along on a wild and woolly time-travel safari to go trophy-hunting for dinosaurs. In another, we visit a future wildlife park filled with living dinosaurs created from genetic material discovered on expedition. Contributors include award-winning writers Ray Bradbury (Besides a Dinosaur, Whatta Ya Wanna Be When You Grow Up?), Poul Anderson (Unnatural Enemy), Harry Harrison (Dawn of the Endless Night), Harry Turtledove (The Green Buffalo), Barry Malzberg (Major League Triceratops), Michael Bishop (Herding with the Hadrosaurs), Gregory Benford (Shakers of the Earth), Robert Silverberg (Hunters in the Forest), Connie Willis (In the Late Cretaceous), L. Sprague de Camp (Crocamander Quest) and many more... .

The illustrations for the science essays help visualize the incredible new theories of dinosaur life and behavior. They are executed by much-lauded artists such as Doug Hnederson, whose work has appeared in national touring exhibits of prehistoric life, William G. Stout, whose paintings have been exhibited in the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History, and more. .

Accompanying the fiction are paintings from such acclaimed artists as Wayne D. Barlowe, William Parsons and more... Through science, fiction and art, The Ultimate Dinosaur presents the age of dinosaurs in an exciting new way.
