Dinosaurs of Darkness Lit Hit cover

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.
