Every hidden thing

Kenneth Oppel


Somewhere in the badlands, buried in millennia of rock and sand, lie the bones of a massive dinosaur--a Rex. Discovering it would be the greatest fossil find of the nineteenth century. Samuel Bolt needs to be the one to do it. Rachel Cartland wants the exact same thing for herself.

The Bolts. The Cartlands. Rival famine of fossil hunters, alike in their hatred of one another and their dream of finding the Rex. As both set off into a treacherous landscape searching for the glory of the first American dinosaurs, their paths cross. Amid danger and mystery, the competition between their fathers intensifies. But Rachel and Samuel also find themselves pushed closer together.

What if they joined forces? Could they find a new life together among the ruins of a lost world?

Or will old enmities keep them from both the Rex and each other?
