You never know who you’ll come across along the Fossil Freeway:

Kirk Johnson is the chief curator at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and one of the world’s leading paleobotanists. Ray Troll’s art has been exhibited across the globe. Put them together and you have — well, actually, I’m not sure what you have, but science has never been as much fun as this!

All points bulletin: artist Ray Troll & paleontologist Kirk Johnson, authors of Cruisin’ the Fossil Freeway: An Epoch Tale of a Scientist and an Artist on the Ultimate 5,000 Mile Paleo Road Trip.

and, the Land Library strongly recommends these titles as well:
