When Paleontologist Peter Larson and his team from the Black Hills Institute of Geological Research made the world’s greatest dinosaur discovery in 1990, they knew it was the find of a lifetime; the largest, most complete T. rex ever found. But during a ten-year battle with the U.S. government, powerful museums, Native American tribes, and competing paleontologists, they found themselves not only fighting to keep their dinosaur but fighting for their freedom as wellsos-primary-neonaqua

"The fate of some very old bones may not sound like compelling cinema, but when they compose the 65-million-year-old skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus rex that was 41 feet long and 18 feet high back in the day, all bets are off."--Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

"This labor-of-love portrait of those who labor in the dirt for love of dinosaurs is also a chronicle of the ways in which the modern legal system can threaten the preservation of even prehistory."--John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal
