Summary, etc.:
"Young Wendy had a rare eye for unusual. She was always on the hunt for anything and everything -- gnarly rocks, buds and burrs, the brilliant blue of a jay's feather. When a class trip takes her to Alberta's amazing bonebed, a place known for its dinosaur fossils, twelve-year-old Wendy makes her first major discovery: a piece of fossilized coral from 100 million years ago! From then on, Wendy spends her time among the windswept hoodoos, searching for more treasures from the past. With her rare eye, she has the uncanny ability to see what others miss and eventually travels the world as a preeminent fossil hunter, known as the "fossil whisperer." But it's back home, near Alberta's Milk River, that Wendy makes her most important discovery: an entirely new dinosaur species! This is the remarkable true story of how fossil whisperer Wendy Sloboda discovered Wendiceratops, a dinosaur that would provide a fascinating missing link in history."-- Provided by publisher.
