Summary
After many years of searching, artist James Gurney has discovered a never-before-seen journal by the nineteenth-century explorer Arthur Denison in a used bookstore. Denison's previous travel accounts, published as Dinotopia: A land Apart from Time and Dinotopia: The World Beneath, introduced a lost island where dinosaurs and humans live together in peaceful interdependence. Now Professor Denison and his saurian companion, Bix, set out on a perilous journey to the long-forgotten empire of Chandara. The legendary capital of Dinotopia's east, Chandara has long been shrouded in mystery and was closed off in recent times from western traders and travelers. Several times in its nearly 6,000-year history, waves of invading saurians have tried to plunder the Chandara riches, but each group has been converted and absorbed by the magic of the city. The city borders the Zhengtao River. Concentric canals and broad avenues radiate like spokes around the central hub of the Imperial Palace. In this remote and lofty height lives the beloved and elusive emperor Hugo Khan
