Editorial Reviews

In 1922 American paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews led an archeological expedition into Mongolia's Gobi Desert and uncovered one of the richest dinosaur graveyards in the world. Political conflicts forced him to leave before he had even scratched the surface of the treasure below. In 1997, two paleontologists from the American Museum of Natural History were finally allowed to return, retracing Chapman's steps and unearthing some groundbreaking finds of their own. With spectacular on-location filming, archival footage from Chapman's expedition and impressive computer animation, it's an amazing journey back in time to a lost world where ancient giants once roamed.

I purchased this video hoping to learn more about dinosaurs and the paleontologists that enrich this prehistoric world for our families. I was not disappointed. This was a great look into a cross section of paleontologists' lives, their efforts, their disappointments, their failures and successes. Good education and entertainment for the whole family.

Format: DVD
Dinosaurs are almost everyone's favorite fossils. More books have been written and movies made about dinosaurs than any other group of fossils. Dinosaurs are replicated or included in numerous children's toys. Does anyone not know about Tyranosaurus? There's "Jurassic Park." There's Barney. Our culture is overrun with dinosaurs.

So, how did all of this come to be? Well, dinosaurs are among some of the most spectacular fossils known and were collected way back in the early 1800s when the science of Geology was in it's infancy. But they are not particularly abundant. They are only found in sedimentary rocks deposited during the Mesozoic Era. They are very difficult to collect and display. An actual collection of dinosaurs or dinosaur remains is exceedingly expensive and well beyond the means of the average person.

I'm not certain where or when I got this video as I discovered it hidden away in my DVD library and it's probably been there for at least a decade or more and dates back to before the time that I began reviewing things for Amazon. In any case, in this DVD The National Geographic Society presents "Dinosaur Hunters," the ongoing story of exploration and extraction of some extraordinary dinosaur remains from the Gobi Desert interior of Mongolia. The film outlines and emphasizes one of the expeditions. If there are any stars in this documentary film, they are Mike and Mark, two vertebrate paleontologists from the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The DVD chronicles the extraordinary difficulties of traveling to central Mongolia. The journey itself is a formidable task, but the scientific party also have to discover, extract and transport the fossils back to NYC. The difficulties are incredible!

This is a great documentary on fossils found in the Gobi desert. It gives some history (with Roy Chapman Andrews expeditions) and then of course follows through into more recent treks into Mongolia with Mark Norell and Mike Novacek. My 5 year old son loves this program. This DVD is what influenced him to request a trip to the Museum of Natural History for his 5th birthday.
