The authors of this work seek to restore East Coast dinosaurs to their rightful place on the palaeontological map. They describe East Coast dinosaurs including the plant-eating Astrodon johnstoni, which browsed in a tropical Maryland jungle 100 million years ago; Anchisaurus polyzelus, which lived in New England some 200 million years ago; and Hadrosaurus foulkii, a duck-billed dinosaur that lived in New Jersey 70 million years ago. In addition, the work chronicles the long history of dinosaur fossil hunting along the Atlantic coast and profiles the modern-day fossil hunters - both professional and amateur collectors - who continue to make important discoveries today.
