In 1992, however, federal agents raided the Institute and seized Sue, triggering the greatest custody battle in paleontological history. In the end, Sue would be auctioned off to Chicago's Field Museum.
Tyrannosaurus Sue is the definitive insider's look at how this dramatic discovery, and the ensuing legal struggle, played out. Everyone from the Jurassic Park crowd of dinosaur lovers to those who delight in a well-told, exciting true story will enjoy this audiobook.
The story of the discovery of the legendary T-Rex Sue and of the following legal battle of "suing for Sue" is amazing but the narrative is so overwhelmed with legal details I am sure I would never reached the end of this book if I were actually reading it and not listening to an audio book.
Sometimes the narrative jumps to the general aspects of paleontology and history of the dinosaurs discovery and it is a welcome relieve from the legal proceedings but I am glad it wasn't the first book I read on this subject. It is not so easy to figure out a clear picture from these jumps.
