From the author of I Bought Andy Warhol comes this fascinating glimpse into the wild world of fossil collecting. Polsky's seriously funny new book leads us into the South Dakota badlands where he discovers a lost tribe the Boneheads and becomes one of them. This oddball group of dinosaur huntrs is intent on bagging the Holy Grail of the professiona Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton.
