Feathered Dinosaurs; The Origin of Birds
The latest fossil evidence makes clear that not all dinosaurs suffered extinction 65 million years ago. Most palaeontologists now believe that all living birds are descendants of certain predatory dinosaurs, the theropods, many of which have been preserved with feathers as part of their skin.
Artist Peter Schouten dramatically brings to life all the known groups of dinosaurs that bore feathers. The author, John Long, unravels the mysteries of the origin of birds and the evolution of flight. He details the transition from small feathered dinosaurs to primative flying bird.
