Description - Feathered Dinosaurs by John Long
New fossil evidence has recently shown that not all the dinosaurs suffered extinction 65 million years ago. It's a revelation that has profoundly changed the way we perceive the natural world and has given us a new understanding about the origins of birds. Feathered Dinosaurs dramatically brings to life all the known groups of dinosaurs that bore feathers. Through the eyes of one of the world's most acclaimed natural history artists, Peter Schouten, their peculiar physical traits are matched with living creatures to develop a series of imaginative life paintings of this fascinating extinct group. Palaeontologist and popular science author John Long provides an easily readable text that explains each of the steps in going from dinosaur to bird, and how flight evolved.
