Summary
Peter Belzoni and his father, a photojournalist, accept the nearly impossible task of returning "a menagerie of avisaurs, centrosaurs, and ankylosaurs, as well as one large predatory raptor named Dagger" from their previous home in the Lothar Gluck Circus in Venezuela to "the wild."--Jacket
Summary
It is June 1947, and the last dinosaur circus has gone bankrupt. The dinosaur craze had begun with Professor Challenger's expedition to El Grande, the famous Lost World. Numerous others interested mainly in capturing dinosaurs and exporting them to circuses and zoos had followed Challenger. Peter and his photojournalist father, Anthony, have been hired to document the demise of the last dinosaur circus; they are to see its last show and then travel to its headquarters in Florida. Peter realizes they are not going to Florida when they board a boat to Venezuela. They are going to El Grande, the Lost World, to release the dinosaurs back into the wild. -- Description by: Tom Reynolds
