Extremely disappointing book. Being a lifelong Alaskan myself and a lover of both dinosaurs and science, I thought this book sounded right up my alley. The back cover says that their discovery 'drops a bombshell on the scientific community.' I couldn¿t wait to find out what they had discovered. Well, turns out, nothing. There was zero science in this book. They described neither their methods nor their findings. It was simply one long winded diatribe of weather conditions that could have been straight out of a junior high schoolers journal. The dinosaur bones they went searching for were mentioned a mere 2 or 3 paragraphs in this entire book, and only to say pretty much 'we found some bones.' AND....??? This book was more comedic than anything else. I couldn't help but laugh at some of the stuff these guys did and how inexperienced they were and the situations they got themselves into. This was not a story about 'scientists' or 'new discoveries' in the least, just a bunch of grown men on a treasure hunt in a place they know nothing about. And on top of it, there were random interjections about God and how grand God is, and how God saved them from calamity whenever even the most minor thing came up (I really don't think God cares whether or not you're cold or run out of insect repellant. SORRY! You're in a raft on an Alaskan river, get used to it!) And of course probably most importantly, the writing was incredibly bland and boring. I¿m sure in person it was probably a pretty exciting experience to them, but needless to say, as a book it was terrible. I almost couldn¿t finish it. I was just hoping they would get to the point of their `scientific discovery¿. Which they didn¿t. I really wish I had bought the used copy and saved myself the $$$
