Featuring incredibly realistic computer-generated images and 3-D film clipswith 3-D glassesfield photography by National Geographic cameramen, and much more, the book interweaves dramatic scenes of the far, far distant past; up-to-the-minute scientific profiles of nearly two dozen sea monsters; and a group portrait of the eccentric Sternberg family, Kansas-bred pioneers of marine paleontology. From giant sharks and fierce reptiles to the fossil-hunters who proved that today's land-locked Great Plains were once submerged, to the cutting-edge Large Format Film technology that made "Sea Monsters" possible, this book and the movie behind it will forever change how we think about marine predatorsand make us look at the oceans of our world with new eyes and a shivery mix of wonderment and ancient, instinctive fear.
