His studies lead him into harm's way multiple times, leading to intense action sequences as Nigel runs for his life in a world where he is outnumbered and outsized.

In the second installment, Nigel goes to Mongolia in the Late Cretaceous period, 75 million years ago.

Or dragonflies the size of bald eagles? How about a fish bigger than a great white shark that could take brief walks above the water on shore? With beautiful computer animated renditions of what it all looked like and expert interviews on the subject matter, you can learn and experience the impressive past today, you don't even need a time machine.moreless
