David Digs with the Dinosaur Hunter

by Ailynn Collins
Illustrated by Eva Morales

When David and his parents arrive in Lusk, Wyoming, in 1889, they are not welcomed with open arms. As Chinese immigrants, they are all too familiar with the discrimination they immediately encounter at the general store. Nonetheless, their need to earn money before continuing eastward leads them to find work at John Bell Hatcher’s archaeological dig site just outside of town. Soon David learns that the brilliant paleontologist is on the hunt for dinosaur bones! Can he help Hatcher make the dino discovery of a lifetime?
