Dragon Teeth

Michael Crichton's recently discovered novelan adventure set in the Wild West during the golden age of fossil hunting.The year is 1876. Warring Indian tribes still populate Americas 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 Williams newfound resilience will be tested in his struggle to protect his cache, which pits him against some of the Wests most notorious characters....

Dragon Teeth Reviews

  • Mwanamali

    So a manuscript of Michael's, the god behind one of my favourites ever Jurassic Park, had a manuscript lying in wait all along. And it really is original. No question,

  • Faith

    The blurb for this book really tells all there is to know about it. There were a lot of info dumps about Indians, Custer and paleontology. I thought it was just ok.

  • Henry Avila

    Nine years after the untimely demise of the bright Dr. Michael Crichton a good writer , more talented than many believed, his third posthumous novel Dragon Teeth, is published (he's been busier than numerous authors still technically alive) . If you're looking for an early version of Jurassic Park you will be disappointed, but this book has a feel to it that will keep you turning the page...Essentially the story of two ruthless pioneering paleontologists , historical figures, and great rivals in ...more

    I don’t normally enjoy biographical fiction or fictionalised biography, but I loved this. I don’t know much about this era of American history. I don’t think I knew about dinosaur fossils being found in America. The only other book I’ve read about fossil hunters is Remarkable Creatures by Tracey Chevalier. The topic would not have been so fascinating to me had it not been about the Wild West too, however. Cope and Marsh were real rivals and prominent in their field. #thoroughly enjoyed.

    This was such a fun book . it is the perfect book to take to the beach (specially during this hot summer), to read on the train or take on vacation. The plot is not very complex , but cowboys and dinosaurs are doesn't get any better than that . The main character goes through a tough journey and finds out that sometimes caring is an important trait for a man to have. The dinosaur bones and the rivalry between two of the characters helps give the story context and add another tier t ...more

    "We are finding wonderful dinosaurs!" exulted Cope. "Wonderful, marvelous dinosaurs!"

    Good ol' dinosaurs are wonderful and marvelous as always, and men will always be men: competitive, violent and vengeful. Dragon Teeth is Crichton's third posthumous publication, and fourth historic fiction (Fifth, if you count Timeline). The novel tells the fictionalized account of historic 19th century Bone wars, a race between two paleontologists to unearth and claim dinosaur bones.

    Not what I expected, but I don't think there is anything he has written that I wouldn't love.

    I was hoping this would have the feel and flavor of the Jurassic Park novel, which is one of my all time top 5 books that I have read. If you are hoping for the same thing, I can tell you unequivocally this is completely different. Are there dinosaurs? Yes, but none that have been cloned or a threat to mankind. In fact, this story takes place in the year 1876, when paleontologists didn't get near the re

    This is an interesting review to write, as "Dragon Teeth' is based on the same historical events that served as the basis for my own novel, "The Bone Feud." As Crichton novels go--and I've read them all--it's not his best. According to the afterword by his wife, he began doing research for it in the mid-70s and wrote the novel well before Jurassic Park, but it was never published until now.

    As with my novel, Crichton took many historical liberties with the Cope and Marsh story. He compressed eve
