The Fossil Feud
Marsh and Cope's Bone Wars
The Fossil Feud recounts the rivalry between two competing paleontologists, Othniel Charles Marsh and Edward Drinker Cope. In the mid-19th Century, Marsh and Cope stopped at nothing-from spying, bribing, and stealing-to foil the other's fossil research. Despite their rivalry, both men advanced the science of paleontology through their remarkable discoveries. Full-color photographs, a map, an illustrated dinosaur timeline, and exciting narrative text will inspire the budding fossil hunter in every child. The Fossil Feud is part of Bearport's Fossil Hunters series.
