Guess what book is available?



Hey everyone.  The moment we've been waiting for is finally here!  No, not the theropod Gaia volume.  But something almost as good- The Age of Dinosaurs in Russia and Mongolia!
Yes, available online from Cambridge University Press at this link: http://www.cup.org/ .
Just search for the title and there it is.  Only $140.00 and 544 pages long!  I've ordered mine.
Here's the contents:
