THE DRAGON SEEKERS How an Extraordinary Circle of Fossilists Discovered the Dinosaurs and Paved the Way for Darwin

by | Read by Stuart Langton

History • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

McGowan is a zoology professor at the University of Toronto and curator of paleobiology at the Royal Museum of Ontario, so he knows whereof he speaks. Here he recounts the intriguing story of the early nineteenth-century English fossil hunters, who collectively established that very large reptiles (dinosaurs) once roamed the earth. Attempts to reconcile this growing body of evidence with the Genesis creation story occupied much attention in the decades preceding Darwin’s ORIGIN OF THE SPECIES. Stuart Langton’s reading is admirably straightforward. He speaks clearly, seems comfortable with reptilian nomenclature, and tells the story in a full-speed-ahead manner.
