Description

These hilarious fictional diaries put us inside the heads of hapless figures from history. Anne Mansfield is a 14-year-old girl in Victorian England obsessed with collecting dinosaur fossils and frustrated by the lack of respect she receives from male scientists. Seizing the opportunity to search for fossils in the USA, she finds herself being sucked into the notorious Bone Wars, a rivalry between American professors wanting to be the first to make new discoveries by whatever means necessary. Can Anne overcome her mistakes, the dangers of the West and the prejudices and petty infighting of her male peers to make a name for herself as Britain s greatest dinosaur hunter? Get Real fact boxes featured throughout provide historical context and summarise the relevant scientific principles.
