Abstract:

A pair of fierce but beautiful eyes look out from the undergrowth of conifers. She is an intelligent killer. So begins this extraordinary novel on the life of a lady dinosaur in the prehistoric swamps of Utah. The time is 120 million years ago, the place is the plains of prehistoric Utah, and the eyes belong to an unforgettable heroine. Her name is Raptor Red, and she is a female raptor dinosaur. When her mate is killed on a hunting expedition she teams up with her sister, a mother of three, and the novel follows their struggle to eat and survive in a dangerous world. Eventually she finds another mate. Painting a rich and colorful picture of a lush prehistoric world, leading paleontologist Robert T. Bakker (author of The Dinosaur Heresies) tells his story from within Raptor Red's extraordinary mind, dramatizing his revolutionary theories in this exciting tale. From a tragic loss to the fierce struggle for survival to a daring migration to the Pacific Ocean to escape a deadly new predator, Raptor Red combines fact and fiction to capture for the first time the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors of the most magnificent, enigmatic creatures ever to walk the face of the earth.
