The date is January 11, 1911.
A young German paleontologist, accompanied only by a guide, a cook, four camels, and a couple of camel drivers, reaches the lip of the vast Bahariya Depression after a long trek across the bleak plateau of the western desert of Egypt.
The scientist, Ernst Freiherr Stromer von Reichenbach, hopes to find fossil evidence of early mammals.
In this, he will be disappointed, for the rocks here will prove to be much older than he thinks.
They are nearly a hundred million years old.
Stromer is about to learn that he has walked into the age of the dinosaurs.At the bottom of the Bahariya Depression, Stromer will find the remains of four immense and entirely new dinosaurs, along with dozens of other unique specimens.
But there will be reversals—shipments delayed for years by war, fossils shattered in transit, stunning personal and professional setbacks.
