Synopsis

In 2007, a massive, concentrated deposit of dinosaur fossils, some of theoldest ever found, were discovered in the mountain ridges of northernBritish Columbia, near an old coal mining town. The site contained thelargest number of tyrannosaur teeth ever found with another species, anunfortunate lambeousaur who¹d been scavenged by a pack of hyena-likejuvenile predators millions of years ago. The small group of paleontologistsdigging the site have had to keep its location a secret to protect it fromfossil hunters, as there are no laws in British Columbia to preventcommercial excavations. Acclaimed adventure writer, Leslie Anthony, was the first journalist to visit sprawling new tracts of interest in the area during a rugged rafting trip through remote mountain rivers in the fall of 2011. Bones of Contention is anextended version of a story that appeared (print only) in theJanuary/February 2012 issue of Canadian Geographic magazine.
