Dragon Bones and Dinosaur Eggs: A Photobiography of Roy Chapman Andrews

by Ann Bausum
Photographed by American Museum of Natural History

Published by National Geographic Society, 2000
64 pages
ISBN: 0-7922-7123-8

Age 8 and older

Naturalist and adventurer Roy Chapman Andrews was born in Beloit in 1884, where he lived until he graduated from Beloit College in 1906. His boyhood interests in observing the natural world and his skills as an amateur taxidermist gained him rapid promotions from his first job cleaning floors at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The man who later made history himself because of his intrepid spirit, unparalleled explorations, and subsequent fossil discoveries in Mongolia between 1922 and 1930 ultimately was named AMNH director. His thirst for knowledge and adventurous spirit took him to many remote areas of the world that had not yet been explored by outsiders. Bausum's objective account of this complex person who had a strong commitment to the field he was instrumental in developing is abundantly illustrated with black-and-white photographs, most of which were taken during his expeditions.
