Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time Gurney's premise — of an undiscovered island where a race of mystical humans co-exists in harmony with intelligent dinosaurs — has been since reiterated over and over in numerous films and by scores of other writers. As a tale of high adventure and discovery told as entries and sketches in journal form, Dinotopia presents a shipwrecked visitor's glimpse into an imagined social order, a culture, and even a cooperative interspecies technology that will satisfy lovers of fantasy and science fiction of all persuasions. Professor Denison and Will have been living on Dinotopia for several years, learning the marvels of this lost island continent where dinosaurs and humans have coexisted peacefully for centuries, cut off from the rest of the world. Now Professor Denison decides to explore the natural mysteries of Dinotopia. He turns his attention to the ancient caves that point to a long-lost Dinotopian civilization that seems to have used a technology beyond any that the Professor has ever before encountered. His journey takes him deeper and deeper into the heart of Dinotopia, into the World Beneath. The artwork has been reproduced from new plates digitally scanned from the original transparencies. This unabridged, expanded edition includes 30 additional pages, including a new Foreword by paleontologist Michael Brett-Surman and an Afterword by the author with over 40 behind-the-scenes sketches and photos.

Sometimes land creatures hold out a claw or wing to represent the dolphin flipper which has all the bones of the human hand.

He lingers near the roost of the Skybax. For instance. As he landed a babble of greetings announced him to be a "Skybax Rider. With a hand extended. This way into many Dinotopian despite being air-breathers. His mount is called a Quetzakoatlus skybax. Will cannot conceal his fascination with flying.

Dolphins owe their genial good nature and their playfulness to an almost perfect adaptation to their watery home. Will has declared determination to become a Skybax Rider! Does the whole island know of our arrival? It is disturbing.

But Tok has much confidence in the boy. Meantime my own thoughts of an eventual return home have turned to the old maps Tok mentioned. Going to Waterfall City might provide me with an opportunity to find out more about them. I expressed to Tok my doubts about Will's maturity. He You must learn to let am is reaching out for responsi- him learn. Tok eyed me and for remarked. Newcomers are not expected to achieve such control of the wild creatures.

I too anxious. I hope. She remembered me. Tok pointed out that the creature I for is female. No rocks. Seek peace. To be precise. Arthur Denison. The clear air,. After several hours she announced, "Short cut," and led us away from the road at a point where it veered to the south. She might as well have said. Had our legs been ten feet long, as were some of the giants Bix described, the fallen logs and muddy mires would have offered no obstacle.

Nevertheless we kept steadily on, Bix commenting and explaining as we went. I learned,. She directed us to a thicket of totora reeds, nipped off a quantity with her beak, and showed us how to bind them into a serviceable boat, much like those used by the fishermen of Lake Chad.

Each of the hadrosaurs was equipped with its own which it used to even if those kinfolk hoot at others of its own kind were miles away through fog and forest. After a deafening concert of raspy honking, a hollow log distinctive resonating chamber,. The humans then took their turn with matching instruments and costumes. Those people waiting to perform shut their eyes and puffed out their cheeks like frogs who have swallowed fat flies.

Such serious pomp and bombast I had not seen since a visit to the United States Senate. Along the banks of the stream. We shoved off early next morning. We had a single glimpse of the city before the boat overturned in the shallows. Climbing up the rocks and gasping we beheld Waterfall City for the first time. At intervals a head force as saurs wobbled into the sunny would bob up out a warning [60] to — watch us. But I took some time.

They approached. From our high perch we gazed down on the foaming waters. I saw they were flying vessels. He invited us aboard.

Will scrambled to his place enthusiastically. I boarded. All at once several objects which at first I took to be Skybaxes appeared above the city. At the very moment they settled to the earth. We all linked together soon skittered to a stop in a lofty. Will hallooing in a shameless display of high spirits. Our flight gave us a clear vista of the city dome. I dismounted with as much dignity as my soggy condition A colorful crowd led us away through the swirling vapors.

But the map-makers are sadly confused. I saw names from many other nations and epochs. We are to stay in a hostelry maintained by the city for its many visitrail tors.

Will and I spent several days in carefree wanderings. So hearty were the greetings that I had little time to notice the magnificence of all about us. Malik would be willing to instruct me about time. The atmosphere of warm enthusiasm overcame all my doubts.

August 6. She said she had made an appointment for me with a distinguished Stenonychosaurus named Malik. I am sure. I wrote "Arthur Denison. He showed me his most beloved treasures. Professor of Sciences.

Presently we were standing in a long marble corridor. I met him in his museum of clocks and sundials. I ventured. Malik had begun a kind of chatter.

They are our models of the passage of time. No matter. Or the helix. Your eastern brothers regard time as a circle. Both ideas have a dimension of the truth. If you were to combine geometrically the movement of the circle with the movement of the As line.

Then this will be usehil. Time for the magnolia buds to open. Professor Denison. If you sit quite down of mountains. Of what use to us is that?

Why not pay attention to the precise year life cycle of the bamboo Guadua trinii or the exactly repeated mitotic cycle of the Parame- cium? The whole earth has a heartbeat. At intervals. Time "Time for Kentrosaurus to plant the millet. Every hundred years or so. Movements You think of meaningless hours. Malik took to hatch. He paused. Malik reached his clawed hand for a small silver box and handed it to me.

A creaking wooden device. I'm afraid you persist in thinking of time as numbers. And when you do. Dinosaurs A growl head to don't like to fumble with turning pages. A curious gentleman who called himself Nallab greeted us at the door. His eyes twinkled. Bix then showed us to the hbrary.

After his very active experiences at Volcaneum and the Hatchery. The early Dinotopian dinosaurs left — on stream banks directions. Will disliked the idea of being shut in with musty scrolls. But instead we'll get you started " with the quill of an Osteodontornis orri. But as he said to me footprint messages any amount of studying will get me into a Skybax saddle privately. Dinosaurs have a the outside.

The hazy is not even ideas. Eat to live. He cocked an eyebrow at me. Others first. Don't p. Exercise imagination. Give more. It when we discovered it. I climbed the pyramid loomed above the northwest corner of Waterfall City. He cackled in high glee. Comes from that herb we eat — he waved a long-lived on Dinotopia " vague hand.

Do one thing at a time. I am incredulous of course. We are all very — at least by your standards. Sing every day. I even felt free to ask him about his age.

One raindrop raises the Weapons sea. The engineers study my diagrams with thoughtful respect. Perhaps we are enchanted by the mist..

Will and I have dropped anchor here in Waterfall City. A year and a half in Dinotopia's center of learning. Between studies and teaching I doubt there will be much time for my notebook.

We've been here six months now. March 1 7. Nallab tells me that I will be expected to teach courses in Outer World sciences and developments. The sewing machine. And I can't imagine these different people and dinosaurs can possibly get along without quarreling. Every day after the main meal. Nallab and I meet to explore a new corner of the city. I have become something of a favorite at the library.

We have wandered past canals and fountains. I have at last Nallab says they are the basis of religious myths of a heavenly underworld sacred to dinosaurs. They are so primitive as to be useless. April The route leads through the heart of danger. They have been scurrying about. When we set out to Rainy Basin we will have to be particularly careful. I the high places in the western sector and sit beneath the Lion Statues where two long-toothed.

Whenever I grow weary from reading scrolls or exploring the vaulted passages below the mount city. Bix told that at one time the falling water was as silent as the clouds. Will's studies are complete. Their roaring awoke the waters. He can hardly contain his excitement.

Tyrannosaurus cross rex. Could there still be such lions alive on DinoI sometimes hear talk of the Forbidden Mountains. Bix clarified. The thought of dan- ger has preoccupied the lively family of ornithomimid scribes with whom we have been living since moving from the hostelry. They are preparing for their annual journey north to the Habitat Conference near Treetown. I have absolutely no taste for either. Her name is Koro Kidinga. She bears her added burden with dignified resignation.

The bridge had weight of snow. Suddenly Koro lifted her head to the level of the treetops. Tyrannosaunis rex is not evil. I protested Bix that Will and I were neither warriors nor did we have weapons. We came to a drawbridge.

No retreat was possible. By mid-morning of the day of our departure. At the same moment. Long past midday. Only hungry by nature. The hundreds of pounds offish and armor kept Koro to a deliberate shuffle.

SUCH buckspent two days simply fastening the full stiff I les joining the overlapping plates of armor for bones so that after we crossed over and Koro stepped off. That is why we carry fish. One by one as they hit the they broke open with a thud ground. I helped Bix back into the saddle.

I see why she is an ambassador! Close upon our circle it paused. With a heavy. Bix leapt down from her perch in the saddle on to the back of a Styracosaurus there to confront the attacker. Bix signaled to Will to start cutting loose the bas- passerby.

Bix told Will to stand ready to cut free the baskets offish while I tried to quiet the frantic scribes. Will exclaimed. I watched as she addressed the by name. For the next six days our exit from the Rainy Basin was confounded by a lack of trails and a series The channels. At last the caravan of difficult river crossings.

A dignified elder Trkeratops with a broken horn had now gathered. He swung his head to one side and hooted. That she has been designated as our personal guide makes me realize how important the dinosaurs consider the arrival of new humans into their society.

Will elbowed me. The scribes trotted and then paused. We would like to make some — introductions. All eyes were upon us. The scribes spun in circles. Our time spent alongside the sandboxes in Waterfall City was not in vain. Bix is well known here and was greeted by all with immense respect. The urgency. He carved ing. Oolu and Lightwing. Based on the advice and help of the group.

Each pairing of human and dinosaur repre- sents a different biological region. Their care: Moraine and Bigtusk. Bracken and An area of great Fiddlehead. Dorsolith a Eiiplocephalus and Seco five mothers Sonoran. Magnolia and Paddlefoot. Draco and Highjump. I was deeply impressed by the care and concern each sector displayed for the whole. Will is in awe that he has actually been introduced to Oolu.

I in the big central one and fed us a bowl of soup while telling us of the late evening bell that signals all to rake up the fires. I was asleep before the — bell rang. Bix departed for the latest gossip. The village perches in the canopy of an oak forest. She showed us our sleeping arrangements Will in one of the boys' trees.

He had learned that her parents live near there. She soon involved us in busy activity supplies to be hoisted. As the day wore on. Eventually we drew near to Treetown. I kept quiet. Norah noticed how tired we were. We have grown very fond ofBix. Norah climbs up and down the ladders without a thought. May I ask that tonight you spend the night in the dinosaur barns. I have only surveyed the but Will seems to be acquainted already with every twig.

I will simply take my time about exploring. They claimed to be expert rope swingers and dared him to take part in some dangerous stunts. Norah turned to me. I braced myself for a scolding. Try playing a Tyrannosaurus there. The Will. I scene. The following day. But she turned Mr.

A paradise. She has a sweetness of character. Cool nights. The head swung up and vanished into the darkness of the rafters. Will spent an uneasy night among the giants. Will's behavior has improved and he seems to be reapplying himself with vigor to his tasks.

There is a wholly different class of flora at these heights. I have so far recognized great trees of rhododendron. We must be at about 5. I have lately had many conversations with Sylvia. After I complete my daily chores for Norah.

I asked where she had learned so 'green people'. Melanie has reawak- ened in me the love of Nature.

I soon discovered she was a positive encyclopedia on plants and. Norah cheerfully said to me. Take Melanie and Kalyptra with you. One morning. He spoke with such familiarity about the old pepper ports on the coast of Java. The claim often made is that the tea changes the body's chemistry to reverse the ageing process. This is obviously the "herb" to which interested in — Nallab so airily referred back in Waterfall City.

The banners strung across the track represent each of the four quadrants of the island. To Will's keen pleasure. Sylvia's rapport with dinosaurs going to be extremely important. Will and Sylvia rounded the track. I was enveloped in a cloud ot happy celebration. Then of a sudden the crash of a cymbal woke the multitude into a frenzy of excitement. Race Day saw crowds pouring into the rustic stadium from all the villages around Deep Lake.

At first I tried to sketch. Although I had done nothing. My son's team was triumphant! Many hands slapped my shoulder in congratulation. The victorious paused to receive the blessing of all the dinosaur elders. What region. Brokehorn gave each of them a token of good fortune for the journey ahead.

We made uncommonly good progress through will miss upon the high backs of migrating Apatosaiiruses affording us a fine view of the foothills of the Backbone Mountains. Will crawls out of his bed in a niche in the wall and takes the twohour climb to the Skybax rookery. Like many of the dinosaur abodes I have seen.

The Pteranodon remained in the canyons as gatekeeper to the World Beneath.

Both have a needed role to play in the canyons. That boundary cannot be crossed while you are in flight. The creature preened and stretched. During all our travels in Dinotopia. Bix was of no help. It seemed I would have to find out for myself. In the coming days. Could there be any substance to those old charts from Waterfall City?

I now felt intensely curious about this mystery. What was the secret business of the canyon? Oolu spoke of the "World Beneath" as if it were an actual place.

Egyptian in character. The next day we followed the pathway of the rubbed walls beyond the point of the Sentinels.

Will and I spoke long into the night about this exploration. We descended the cliffs by an old trail that was still in use. I wore my old blanket.

We reached the confluence of the Ancient Gorge some ten miles below Canyon City and made camp. The smell of death hung The bodies of dead dinosaurs bemg scoured to the bone by the Pteranodons did not attack us.
