American Dinosaur Abroad
A Cultural History of Carnegie's Plaster Diplodocus
Nieuwland crafts appealing portraits of the narrative’s many characters, especially William J. Holland, the director of the Carnegie Museums and a lepidopterist turned self-trained paleontologist. . . . Extensive use of archives and sources in multiple languages result in thorough context for a global movement that involved much anatomical speculation and dueling expertise. Though it was not written in Nieuwland’s first language, the book’s prose is flawless.
