"Eons past, an ancient creature the size of a bunk house lived out a solitary life and died all alone in a rugged, prehistoric canyon. Millennia later that canyon would occupy an isolated corner of C. L. McSween's Rocking S Ranch. It might have gone on for millennia future untouched if not for McSween's plan to dam the canyon up, to provide water for his cattle.



Paleontology is a brand new science in 1877, and when Samuel Cobsworth, a paleontologist from back east, discovers the cache of bones from this long-dead Jurassic monster, he considers them a priceless treasure trove. C. L. McSween and his daughter Libby don't see it that way. They're concerned only about ensuring their cattle's survival during the next drought. On top of that, McSween is a superstitious ex-mountain man. He considers the bone digger a grave robber and wants him off his ranch!



To Chad Larimer, foreman of the Rocking S Ranch, Cobsworth's discovery is nothing more than a bunch of old cow bones ... until strangers from back east show up desperate to get their hands on them. Among the Easterners is the infamous paleontologist Professor O. C. Marsh. Marsh wants the bones for his museum and is prepared to have them at any cost. He's brought hired guns with him, and whoever gets between him and those bones is going to die.



Unfortunately, Chad is the man in the middle.
