Although the title sounds a little Indiana Jones, a respectable amount of precise and recent scientific information about dinosaurs and geology is mixed into two parallel histories of expeditions to the same remote and bone-laden Egyptian oasis. Jumping back and forth between blackboard didactics and hot desert digging, Michael Hall's soft voice succeeds equally with scientific pronunciation as with the scientists' sweaty adventures and endurances. He wends millions of years in six hours, so one must pay attention. Eclectic listeners will find LOST DINOSAURS OF EGYPT to be an enlightening, up-to-date mini-course in paleontology. J.A.H.
