The Bone Museum: Travels in the Lost Worlds of Dinosaurs and Birds

by Wayne Grady
New York: Basic Books, 2003. 304 pages.

In The Bone Museum, science journalist Wayne Grady wittily and insightfully chronicles his travels around the world with the paleontologist Philip J. Currie as he continues to investigate the evolutionary connections between dinosaurs and birds. "Pluck the feathers off a bird," Currie tells Grady, "and you've got a dinosaur." Wrote the reviewer for Publishers Weekly, "Whether he's musing over the migratory patterns of birds or where to buy winter gloves in Patagonia, Grady's intelligent, seasoned, witty writing makes for a pleasurable and thought-provoking read." Grady is also the author of The Dinosaur Project: The Story of the Greatest Dinosaur Expedition Ever Mounted.
