Description: They push into the Dakota Badlands looking for giant fossils. They find the fossils, and they also find the Sioux. The Badlands are sacred ground.

Candace Huxtable, daughter of a British scientist, joins an early Smithsonian expedition, much to the displeasure of its members. Their guide, Rufus Crowe, warns them that they are invading a place that awes the native people, and there might be grave trouble. Some of the scientists scoff-- until they discover that Crowe is right.

And just beneath the surface are the bones of giant mammals, strange monsters these scientists have never before seen, from some distant past they can scarcely imagine. And as they excavate these heart-stopping fossils, the tribesmen are watching and waiting.

This is Mr. Wheeler's top-selling novel. Now, at last, it is published as an electronic book, revised and condensed.
