Summary "From the first-ever discovery of a Tyrannosaurus rex to Lewis' and Clark's landmark expedition; from the Freeman compound standoff to Sitting Bull and Little Big Horn, Hell Creek has been a central player in the events of the last two hundred years - and the last 200 million." "Renowned paleontologist and writer Lowell Dingus takes us on a tour of this out-of-the-way spot and illuminates its inhabitants, geology, paleontology, and surprising place in history. Nature lovers, dinosaur buffs, and people fascinated with the turbulent history - both ancient and modern - of the American West will find much to delight them in this journey to Hell Creek."--BOOK JACKET.
