Monday, June 22nd. Sundance, WY. 48 miles. Grass lot. Last stop in WY. Tomorrow South Dakota and the Black Hills. More than a Century ago this corner of WY, SD, MT and NE was the scene of a great scientific battle as Edward Drinker Cope, greatest of American Naturalists, and O.C. Marsh of the Peabody Museum at Yale University unleashed armies of diggers in search of dinosaur fossils. The resulting "bone war" gave rise to paleontology and inspired the later finds of Mr. Barnum Brown of the American Museum in Montana and Alberta.
