The first book in the Unhinged History series is a ripping yarn -- full of adventure and deceit -- that brings to life the best-known public spat in all of paleontology: the bitter rivalry between Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh. This frenzy of discovery and one-upmanship -- known today as the Bone Wars -- was a gold rushlike scramble to find the most and "best" dinosaur fossils, thus bringing to glory to their respective home-base universities. Lively and witty rhymes plus wonderfully demented illustrations reveal how the paleontologists' infamous rivalry began, and how -- despite making genuine and lasting contributions to the field -- their mutual obsession with outdoing one another spun out of control.
