all of its darkened corners and secret chambers, are illuminated With The Dinosaur Artist, she has done than reveal a gripping true crime story she has cast light on everything from obsessive fossil hunters to how the earth evolved This is a tremendous book David Grann, 1 New York Times bestselling author of Killers of the Flower Moon The Dinosaur Artist is a breathtaking feat of writing and reporting a strange, irresistible, and beautifully written story steeped in natural history, human nature, commerce, crime, science, and politics It s at once laugh out loud funny and deeply sobering I was blown away by the depth of its characters, its vivid details, and Paige Williams incredible command of the facts Bottom line this is an extraordinary debut by one of the best nonfiction writers we ve got Rebecca Skloot, 1 New York Times bestselling author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks The Dinosaur Artist is a tale that has everything passion, science, politics, intrigue, and, of course, dinosaurs Paige Williams is a wonderful storyteller Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Sixth Extinction What a terrific book A fascinating story of adventure and obsession, and a captivating journey into the world of fossils and fossil peddlers, scientists, museums, international politics, the history of life, and the nature of human nature Williams writes beautifully about it all If you love dinosaurs, paleontology, or just a rollicking good tale, you will love this book I couldn t put it down Jennifer Ackerman, New York Times bestselling author of The Genius of Birds A cracking combination of true crime, dinosaurs, and top notch investigative journalism Paige Williams riveting tale exposes the dodgy dealings of the black market trade in dinosaurs, an international underworld that that few people have probably heard of, and which breaks my heart as a paleontologist Steve Brusatte, bestselling author of The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs The Dinosaur Artist is a triumph With peerless prose and sharp eyed reporting, Paige Williams weaves a story that, even as it spans continents and transcends geological epochs, is deeply anchored in the passion and hubris of a rich cast of characters Captivating, funny, and profound, it is easily one of the strongest works of non fiction in years Ed Yong, staff writer, The Atlantic New York Times bestselling author of I Contain Multitudes Paige Williams is as deft as the fossil hunters and skeleton builders she writes about As they exhume treasures secreted in earthen repositories and assemble brilliant mounts from a scattering of dinosaur bones, she mines exquisite details from a quarry of source materials and pieces together a compelling story out of a spillage of human experience The result is a work of art Jack E Davis, Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Gulf I am in awe of Paige Williams Every line of The Dinosaur Artist from her deeply informed discussions of paleontology and the law to her often withering and hilarious descriptions was a pleasure to read Few nonfiction writers are capable of mining their characters with such a winning blend of sympathy, wonder, and rigor Liza Mundy, New York Times bestselling author of Michelle and Code Girls Vivid storytelling A triumphant book Publishers Weekly Williams illuminating chronicle questions who has a right to nature Booklist New Yorker magazine staff writer Paige Williams explores the riveting and perilous world of fossil collectors in this tremendous David Grann true tale of one Florida man s attempt to sell a dinosaur skeleton from Mongolia a triumphant book Publishers Weekly that is steeped in natural history, human nature, commerce, crime, science, and politics Rebecca Skloot In 2012, a New York auction catalogue boasted an unusual offering a superb Tyrannosaurus skeleton In fact, Lot 49135 consisted of a nearly complete T bataar, a close cousin to the most famous animal that ever lived The fossils now on display in a Manhattan event space had been unearthed in Mongolia, than 6,000 miles away At eight feet high and 24 feet long, the specimen was spectacular, and when the gavel sounded the winning bid was over 1 million Eric Prokopi, a thirty eight year old Floridian, was the man who had brought this extraordinary skeleton to market A onetime swimmer who spent his teenage years diving for shark teeth, Prokopi s singular obsession with fossils fueled a thriving business hunting, preparing, and selling specimens, to clients ranging from natural history museums to avid private collectors like actor Leonardo DiCaprio But there was a problem This time, facing financial strain, had Prokopi gone too far As the T bataar went to auction, a network of paleontologists alerted the government of Mongolia to the eye catching lot As an international custody battle ensued, Prokopi watched as his own world unraveled In the tradition of The Orchid Thief, The Dinosaur Artist is a stunning work of narrative journalism about humans relationship with natural history and a seemingly intractable conflict between science and commerce A story that stretches from Florida s Land O Lakes to the Gobi Desert, The Dinosaur Artist illuminates the history of fossil collecting a murky, sometimes risky business, populated by eccentrics and obsessives, where the lines between poacher and hunter, collector and smuggler, enthusiast and opportunist, can easily blur In her first book, Paige Williams has given readers an irresistible story that spans continents, cultures, and millennia as she examines the question of who, ultimately, owns the past. that artist woman Silhouettes Dinosaur Art Project I did the dinosaur project with my kinders and grader nd made d dinos a cut
