“Science and history combine in a kind of tapestry in the discipline of paleontology. Earth history and life history are interwoven, but with many missing threads. With every discovery we add more to the scope and content of that tapestry, until broad patterns emerge and we can establish a credible glimpse into our remote heritage. Paleontology on the Colorado Plateau has been a mainstay for North American scientists since the middle of the nineteenth century, following the discovery of dinosaurs here in great abundance. Although we know a great deal about the geology and paleontology of the Mesozoic Era, some discoveries are almost too surprising to imagine – they sometimes defy even our most imaginative wish list. This story, ‘Therizinosaur – Mystery of the Sickle-Claw Dinosaur,’ represents one of those discoveries.” - David D. Gillette, author
