Foreword’s Lit Hit—Indie Books that’ll blow you away
Whether your introduction was Barney or Jurassic Park, there are few people who can claim to have escaped a dinosaur phase. Dinosaurs of the non-purple variety are most often depicted in warmer climes, surrounded by towering green trees and long grasses, but Thomas H. Rich and Patricia Vickers-Rich paint a new picture in Dinosaurs of Darkness, a volume detailing the discovery of dinosaurs in once-polar Australia. Some 100–120 million years ago, Australia was connected to Antarctica, forming an icy supercontinent inhabited by—among other extinct species—polar dinosaurs. This update from the award-winning first edition includes the latest discoveries and prevailing theories, as well as several color photographs of the scientists and their findings. A valuable volume detailing an underexplored region of the world of dinosaurs, Dinosaurs of Darkness is essential reading for any dino-devotee.
