內容簡介

以《侏儸紀公園》創下出版史紀錄,《紐約時報》暢銷冠軍小說家麥克.克萊頓(Michael Crichton)過世後,新近被發現的作品。作者將時間拉回尋找化石的黃金時代,將場景設定在美國大西部,是克萊頓又一部驚悚的冒險小說。

1876年,印地安人依舊佔據在美國廣闊的大西部地區,各部族間的戰事持續著,無法可管的淘金城鎮已經在這片地景之上冒出了頭。兩個古生物學家爭論達爾文稱為演化的異端理論,兩個人在這片狂野的西部搶奪恐龍化石,彼此欺騙與蓄意的破壞,轉變成所謂的恐龍骨戰爭(The Bone Wars)。

擁有特權多於理性的耶魯學生William Johnson踏進了這片艱險之地,為了贏過打賭的對手,他加入了世界知名的古生物學家Othniel Charles Marsh最新發起的探險團隊,不料Marsh卻誤以為William是他的宿敵Edwin Drinker Cope派來的奸細,便將William拋在懷俄明州一個惡行集結之處。

很快地,William加入了Cope團隊,無意中發現了恐龍化石,這個珍貴的發現所帶來的危險,測試著William的堅定力,並讓他使出渾身解數來對抗西部最危險與惡名昭彰的人物…。


Michael Crichton, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Jurassic Park, returns to the world of paleontology in this recently discovered novel ─ a thrilling adventure set in the Wild West during the golden age of fossil hunting.

The year is 1876. Warring Indian tribes still populate America’s western territories even as lawless gold-rush towns begin to mark the landscape. Against this backdrop two paleontologists pillage the Wild West for dinosaur fossils, while deceiving and sabotaging each other in a rivalry that will come to be known as the Bone Wars.

Into this treacherous territory plunges William Johnson, a Yale student with more privilege than sense. Determined to win a bet against his arch-rival, William has joined world-renowned paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh on his latest expedition. But Marsh becomes convinced that William is spying for his nemesis, Edwin Drinker Cope, and abandons him in Cheyenne, Wyoming, a locus of crime and vice.

Soon William joins forces with Cope and stumbles upon a discovery of historic proportions. The struggle to protect this extraordinary treasure, however, will test William’s newfound resilience and pit him against some of the West’s most dangerous and notorious characters…
