The story takes place on a Montana ranch. A paleontologist and his two assistants arrive with a BLM authorization to dig up dinosaur bones. Unbeknownst to the owner of the ranch who has grudgingly given her permission to allow the dig, there is a filmmaker from California who has plans and the connections to sell the bones on the black market. It's a complex story with a multitude of characters. The descriptions and events are superbly written.
