Old Bones & Serpent Stones by T. Skwara
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Fossils, and the life of the past that they represent, are themes of great interest to the general public. This book identifies and describes essentially all publicly accessible, interpreted plant and animal fossil localities in the western half of Canada and the United States -- from Manitoba to Texas and westward. These are educationally oriented sites where the public may visit proven fossil localities, normally see fossils in place or in on-site collections, and learn about the geology and palaeontology of the site or region. Section 1 provides geological and biological contexts for the area and sites covered in the book. Section 2, which occupies the greatest part of the volume, describes and provides access information about the individual sites. Section 3 identifies sources of additional information about the sites and the subject matter reviewed in the first section. These sources include museum exhibits, pertinent literature! , sources of fossil replicas, and organised field experiences in palaeontology open to the public.
