The Amazing World of Dinosaurs

The Amazing World of Dinosaurs

Dinosaurs have filled us with wonder since the first monstrous bones were pulled from the earth hundreds of years ago. For centuries, we imagined dinosaurs as giant, clumsy brutes—but science has since revealed them to be so much more. They were living, breathing animals that had moments of great power and ferocity, but also periods of quiet beauty. Of course, science cannot tell us how they behaved or how they interacted with their environments. For that, we need our imaginations.

These captivating images are paired with James Kuether’s research and insights, which make dinosaurs and the Mesozoic Era accessible to anyone. Let James Kuether take you on an Illustrated Journey Through the Mesozoic Era. From famous creatures like Tyrannosaurus rex to lesser-known...
