Paleo: Dino guide is Book of the Year Finalist

"Great Day Trips in the Connecticut Valley of the Dinosaurs" has been selected as a Finalist for ForeWord Magazine's 2004 Book of the Year Award, the magazine announced last week.

Known for its reviews of books by independent publishers, ForeWord says its mission is "to provide booksellers and librarians and publishing professionals with a source of reviews of independent and university press titles...ForeWord  is a gathering place, in print, for the industry's leaders, grandest thinkers, most literate reviewers and young authors to watch."

The book tells the tales of two centuries of dinosaur fossil discoveries in the Connecticut Valley, studies made of them in the past, what the evidence reveals today, and field trips to sites where readers can make their own judgements about the fossils' true meaning.

"Great Day Trips in the Connecticut Valley of the Dinosaurs" is available online at cttrips.com.
