This is a remarkable piece of work that brings together a great deal of information on the extant knowledge of Native American explanations of the fossilized creatures that the various tribes encountered over the years. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to include this aspect of anthropology/literature as part of their knowledge of other peoples.
book provides a fabulous insight into the Native American legends and
extends an overdue recognition of the scientific contributions provided
by Native Amerians over the years. Well written and informative!!
