This book is like a journal written by a discoverer — think Charles Darwin. The pages are filled with amazing paintings of dinosaurs, animals, creatures, insects and the habitat. And every one of the illustrated is documented. The level of detail and thought behind can be seen from the documentation. There are no pencil sketches, only beautiful paintings.
No where in the book was any reference made to the movie. And that I believe is what gives this book the authentic feel.
There are 6 parts to the book featuring the different sections of the island:
- The crumbling coast and village
- The shrinking lowlands
- The winding swamps and waterways
- The steaming jungle
- The Abyssal Chasms
- The Barren Uplands
