A True Story of Scientific Rivalry and the Discovery of the Prehistoric World by Deborah Cadbury

'No other narrative I know illustrates the human element in scientific discovery quite so dramatically.' Evening Standard
'This is a tale of intrigue and deception, of burning ambition and failed dreams. The bitter clashes between the men who dominated 19th- century geology are exquisitely portrayed by Deborah Cadbury in this scholarly yet exhilarating book.' Independent
'This is a story we should all know, a defining part of contemporary western culture. I can't think of a better introduction.' Sunday Times
'This is a wonderful book, evoking a time when science required remarkable people to conduct it.' Observer
