Walking with Dinosaurs: A Natural History - hardcover

2000, ISBN: 0789451875

[SR: 1360770], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780789451873], Dorling Kindersley Publishing, Dorling Kindersley Publishing, Book, [PU: Dorling Kindersley Publishing], 2000-03-01, Dorling Kindersley Publishing, There is no shortage of books on dinosaurs and it has become increasingly difficult to produce anything novel without departing too much from the scientific evidence. Walking with Dinosaurs is one of the rare gems. The most spectacular aspect of the book is the images, which are basically stills from the accompanying television documentary series. By using state-of-the-art computer graphics and animation of models a new kind of "reality" is introduced. The dinosaurs are portrayed against real landscapes, which were specially photographed for the series. The combined effect is to produce a wonderful array of new images of dinosaurs and other contemporary animals from marine and flying reptiles to mammal ancestors. Even die-hard dinophobes would have to admit that Tim Haines and the BBC team have produced something of a coup, which comes very close to their aim of making a film about dinosaurs as if they were living animals. All that is missing is David Attenborough lurking in the undergrowth. The other novel aspect is that rather than trying to take a general swipe across all of dinoland, they sensibly focus on a limited number of scenes in time which the scientists know most about. So the story starts in New Mexico, as it was 220 million years ago (Late Triassic times), and focuses on the early days of dinosaur evolution. We are swept through four successive time frames before fetching up at the end of the dinosaur road with the aptly named Hell Creek in the western US, 65 million years ago. Designed for dinofans of all ages, this spectacularly illustrated book is a significant addition to dinoliterature, offering a well balanced view of the "pros and cons" of the dinodebate today. -- Douglas Palmer, 492604, Animals & Pets, 291724, Hobbies & Interests, 69, Children's Books, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 408228, Dinosaurs, 291724, Hobbies & Interests, 69, Children's Books, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271565, United States, 12447492031, 18th Century, 271567, 19th Century, 12447493031, 20th Century, 12447494031, 21st Century, 271599, African Americans, 10755401, American Civil War, 271566, Colonial Period, 772168, Revolution & Founding, 12447484031, Americas, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 277972, Animal Sciences, 277975, Animal Rights, 277976, Behaviour, 277990, Birds, 922098, Butterflies, 278393, Dinosaurs, 922206, Extinction & Endangered Species, 922118, Habitats, 922102, Insects & Spiders, 277978, Invertebrates, 277993, Mammals, 922106, Marine Life, 277986, Physiology, 922096, Reference, 922116, Reptiles & Amphibians, 277988, Vertebrates, 277912, Biological Sciences, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278049, Palaeontology, 278028, Earth Sciences & Geography, 57, Science & Nature, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

Walking with Dinosaurs: A Natural History

There is no shortage of books on dinosaurs and it has become increasingly difficult to produce anything novel without departing too much from the scientific evidence. Walking with Dinosaurs is one of the rare gems.

The most spectacular aspect of the book is the images, which are basically stills from the accompanying television documentary series. By using state-of-the-art computer graphics and animation of models a new kind of "reality" is introduced. The dinosaurs are portrayed against real landscapes, which were specially photographed for the series. The combined effect is to produce a wonderful array of new images of dinosaurs and other contemporary animals from marine and flying reptiles to mammal ancestors.

Even die-hard dinophobes would have to admit that Tim Haines and the BBC team have produced something of a coup, which comes very close to their aim of making a film about dinosaurs as if they were living animals. All that is missing is David Attenborough lurking in the undergrowth.
