Summary
Fifty years after Professor Challenger's discovery of the Lost World, America's last dinosaur circus has gone bankrupt, leaving a dozen avisaurs, centrosaurs, ankylosaurs, and one large raptor abandoned. Now a daring expedition plans to do the impossible: return the Jurassic giants to the wild. Two filmmakers, a circus trainer, a journalist, and a young Peter Belzoni must find a way to take the dinosaurs across oceans, continents, rivers, jungles, up a mountain that has been isolated for 70,000 years.... Then if they make it, all they'll have to do is face all the prehistoric wonders, dangers, and terrors of the Lost World
Summary
It is June 1947, and the last dinosaur circus has gone bankrupt. The dinosaur craze had begun with Professor Challenger's expedition to El Grande, the famous Lost World. Numerous others interested mainly in capturing dinosaurs and exporting them to circuses and zoos had followed Challenger. Peter and his photojournalist father, Anthony, have been hired to document the demise of the last dinosaur circus; they are to see its last show and then travel to its headquarters in Florida. Peter realizes they are not going to Florida when they board a boat to Venezuela. They are going to El Grande, the Lost World, to release the dinosaurs back into the wild. -- Description by: Tom Reynolds
