Australia 1993 "mint"
Patricia Vickers-Rich, Leaellyn S.Rich and Thomas H.Rich. Published 1996, Kangaroo Press.
ISBN 0 86417 798 4
The dinosaurs Minmi paravertebra, Atlascopcosaurus
loadsi, and Timimus hermani, and the
pterosaur Ornithocheirus, from an Australia Post
stamp issue painted by Peter Trusler .
d early secondary students, with the input of Drs Tom Rich and Pat Vickers-Richs' teenage daughter Leaellyn (after whom the dinosaur Leaellynasaura was named) to ensure the book is easy to read and accessable to most people. The copious photographs and illustrations make it of interest to people of all ages. It is essentially a brief history of Australian life from the first unicellular blobs to the late pleistocene. The chapter on dinosaurs tends to concentrate on the Dinosaur Cove discoveries, which is hardly surprising considering the authors. Although published in 1996 the book did not receive widespread distribution until the release of the movie Jurassic Park: The Lost World.
Digging up Deep Time
Willis and Abbie Thomas
Australia is home to some of the world's earliest and most unique fossil finds. By investigating each important fossil site in Australia, Paul Willis builds a picture of Australia's earliest prehistory. As well as describing the fascinating natural history of this country, the authors recount the rollicking stories of our dinosaur hunters competing to find the most important fossils and to protect their discoveries.
Dinosaurs of Darkness: Life of the Past
Cover: Hypsilophodontids under an auroral polar sky, with Timimus hybernating in the foreground, by Peter Trusler
Dinosaurs of Darkness opens a doorway to a fascinating former world which existed in Australia more than 100 million years ago - when it was a polar region joined to Antarctica and plunged into darkness much of the year. The way we have come to know about this lost world - so different from any that exists on Earth today - makes for a fascinating story. The authors, who played crucial roles in this discovery, describe their efforts to collect the fossils indispensable to our knowledge of this realm and the laboratory work that unlocked their secrets. Dinosaurs of Darkness is an intriguing personal account of the way scientific research is actually conducted and how hard it is to mine the knowledge of this remarkable life of the past.
