The book narrates the true story of Arkansas hillbilly Cephis Hall and Choctaw Indian Sid Love, two backwoods naturalists who sought buried treasure and nature's booty in the American South. Their troubles began after they discovered and excavated a world-class dinosaur specimen on land owned by a major timber corporation, which propelled them into a drawn out conflict with the company and its friends in government and academia. The book tries to come to grips with the daunting question: What does it mean for two normal citizens to battle a powerful corporation, two elite universities and renowed scientists, a state legislature and prominent politicians, and all the attendant infrastructure set up to sustain them? A dramatic portrayal of the underdog against centers of institutional power.
