It's actually convenient for everyone, though, because as long as she scorns him, he can't go to bed with her. As the novel begins, Mike and Jeanette are living the Montana ranching life. Rain, sleet, thunder and lightning put on a big show, and the two of them occupy themselves performing a C-section on a sorely afflicted cow. Along with these difficulties, it seems that ordinary Montana life is made up of skirmishes with the Bureau of Land Management, neighbors telling each other to get off their property, and preparations for the labor-intensive Fourth of July festivities, which in this case feature several heartfelt fistfights and a couple of murders.
But after Mike and Jeanette meet up with a paleontologist named Pick, the book is pretty much given over to the mechanics of dinosaur hunting: The process of unearthing involves digging for days, then wrapping the bones in plaster casts, aluminum foil or paper towels. The paleontologists and their enthusiastic helpers pass their evenings telling stories and singing old songs.
At this particular dig, which involves a suspicious scientist from a nonexistent university, an asinine jerk from the Bureau of Land Management and narrow-minded Jeanette whom Mike refers to as "the queen of the prairie" , the motivations are either a lust for profit or a yearning to further the cause of science. No one knows whether money or science will win in this unseemly scramble for a spectacular set of old bones. Buy the selected items together This item: Ships from and sold by Amazon.

Greg Pak's reboot of Turok is fascinating: It's just insane enough to work. Pak's work here reminds of his run with the Eternal Warrior for the new Valiant line. One misses these Gold Key characters being part of that tightly knit universe, but this run breathes life into them and gives the arcs a lot more freedom than they would have had in such a tightly knit and coherent comic universe. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Crusaders, dinosaurs and fast paced action!

I can always tell a great book when I am disappointed when it's over. Michael Kramer did a fantastic job with the narration, his voice was almost hypnotic. There are plenty of review that depict the story line so I will just say that I was riveted from the very beginning and the character development was superb so that as the characters were introduced, the author did such a fine job with their description that I felt I had a good sense of them.
The story line and descriptions of the digs were excellent. I found myself wishing there was a sequel, as I developed a fondness for the two main characters. I would definitely recommend this book. Learn some Paleontology too! He was a guest speaker. I instantly liked him I bought and read his Torpedo Junction book I took a Paleontology course and wrote a paper on the evolution of the horse and have fossil collected in the Peace river Fl.

So it was with great interest I bought The Dinosaur Hunter. Homer Hickam has wrote a great book. Action packed from beginning to end. I couldn't put it down. Remember this is a fictional novel so the "facts" discovered about the nest guarding instincts of the "T Rex", etc. Just go with the flow with this book. Don't try to analyze it; just enjoy it.
Homer is superb with character development. You really get to know the characters and how they think.
