Rate this:
In 1928, the boy who will discover Pluto, Clyde Tombaugh, is on the family farm, grinding a lens for his own telescope under the immense Kansas sky. In Flagstaff, Arizona, the staff of Lowell Observatory is about to resume the late Percival Lowell's interrupted search for Planet X. Meanwhile, the heir to a chemical fortune has decided to go west to hunt for dinosaurs, and in Cambridge, the most beautiful girl in America is going slowly insane while her boyfriend stands by helplessly. This tale, inspired by the true story of Pluto's discoverer, follows the interlinked stories of a wealthy heir seeking dinosaurs in the 1920s West, a beautiful girl gradually succumbing to mental illness, and Kansas farm boy Clyde Tombaugh.
