SUMMARY

The New York Timesscience editor John Noble Wilford has called the Central Asiatic Expeditions (1922-1930) "the most celebrated . . . of the twentieth century." Led by world-renowned explorer Roy Chapman Andrews, the five expeditions uncovered unimagined scientific wonders: the Flaming Cliffs, dinosaur eggs, the first skeleton of Velociraptor (the terrifying killer of Jurassic Park fame), and a fossil treasure trove of other dinosaurs and extinct mammals. In Dragon Hunter, Charles Gallenkamp vividly recounts these extraordinary adventures while telling Andrews's incredible life story-from his beginnings as a floor sweeper at the American Museum of Natural History to his international fame as one of the century's most acclaimed explorers. Filled with astonishing tales of political intrigue and braving the elements, Dragon Hunteris a thrilling page-turner that takes readers along on one of the most important scientific missions in history. "Enormously entertaining." (The New York Times Book Review) "Amazing stuff . . . an incredibly exciting life." (National Geographic Explorer)Gallenkamp, Charles is the author of 'Dragon Hunter Roy Chapman Andrews and the Central Asiatic Expeditions' with ISBN 9780142000762 and ISBN 0142000760.
