In 1912 Arthur Conan Doyle published his widely acclaimed novel, The Lost World. Little did his fans know that his tale of a South American plateau where dinosaurs had survived was based on the real-life adventures of his friend Percy Fawcett. In this long-lost expedition journal, readers are introduced to a wealth of living, breathing dinosaurs, as our intrepid explorers study them in their natural habitat.
Raleigh Rimes assisted Colonel Percy Fawcett in a 1907 expedition to a South American island. The team all disappeared in mysterious circumstances. Emily Hawkins has a wealth of editorial experience and Amanda Wood is the brains behind the internationally acclaimed Ology series. Gary Blythe, Douglas Carrel, Nicki Palin, Helen Ward and David Wyatt have all been contributing illustrators to the Ology series, of which Dinosaurology is the 12th title.
