Michael Crichton, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Jurassic Park, returns to the world of paleontology in this recently discovered novel--a thrilling adventure set in the Wild West during the golden age of fossil hunting. The year is 1876. Warring Indian tribes still populate America's western territories even as lawless gold-rush towns begin to mark the landscape. In much of the country it is still illegal to espouse evolution. Against this backdrop two monomaniacal paleontologists pillage the Wild West, hunting for dinosaur fossils, while surveilling, deceiving and sabotaging each other in a rivalry that will come to be known as the Bone Wars. Into this treacherous territory plunges the arrogant and entitled William Johnson, a Yale student with more privilege than sense. Determined to survive a summer in the west to win a bet against his arch-rival, William has joined world-renowned paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh on his latest expedition.  But when the paranoid and secretive Marsh becomes convinced that William is spying for his nemesis, Edwin Drinker Cope, he abandons him in Cheyenne, Wyoming, a locus of crime and vice. William is forced to join forces with Cope and soon stumbles upon a discovery of historic proportions.  With this extraordinary treasure, however, comes exceptional danger, and William's newfound resilience will be tested in his struggle to protect his cache, which pits him against some of the West's most notorious characters. A page-turner that draws on both meticulously researched history and an exuberant imagination, Dragon Teeth is based on the rivalry between real-life paleontologists Cope and Marsh; in William Johnson readers will find an inspiring hero only Michael Crichton could have imagined. Perfectly paced and brilliantly plotted, this enormously winning adventure is destined to become another Crichton classic. … (mais)

Pretty good. It felt unfinished, which makes sense considering it probably was. I don't usually read Westerns or watch them either. I picked this up thinking it would be another SciFi story. It wasn't bad though. Not at all. ( )

As usual, Crichton does a good job infusing fact and fiction. As unusual, this book is rather a stinker. The expected payoff never seems to happen and it's just slow going.

We follow William Johnson, a Yale student, as he goes west with a professor to look for fossils in 1876. The professor he's with, Marsh, has an extreme hatred for a rival paleontologist, Cole. After a series of events that find Johnson aligned with Cole, we hear the truth about Marsh.

I did enjoy the little bit of history about how dinosaurs were viewed back in the late 19th century based on scientific and religious beliefs. But this book is nowhere near classic Crichton. ( )

I enjoyed this better than I would have thought considering it's a western about hunting for dinosaur bones. It's great storytelling, and full of real life characters and places. There are so many ups and downs for the lead. He starts out a rich college boy and ends up a true survivor of the wild west. ( )

This was a fluffy, easy read with a fun blend of history and adventure. It's certainly not groundbreaking, but I can see multiple angles of appeal to fans of westerns, adventure novels, and dinosaurs. It's been a while since I read Crichton's other dinosaur novels, but it is evident that this is one of his earlier works. ( )

It was pretty enjoyable and a fast read. I had a fleeting thought to check out the remaining posthumous Crichton books but then it passed :)
