Dinosaur Lady

The Daring Discoveries of Mary Anning, the First Paleontologist

This delightful illustrated biography is designed to introduce curious young minds to the life and work of Mary Anning, a girl from England who turned shell collecting and exploring the coast into a science, pioneering the field of paleontology. Uncover fossils and never-before-seen skeletons with Mary as she ventures through rough terrain, weather, and the Geological Society’s antiquated notions of gender equality, all while looking lovely in Austen era gowns and bonnets.
