Re: _Digging for Bird Dinosaurs_



Mary et al:
    I am in total agreement here, I just purchased that book last week
because I was impressed with both the photography and the wonderful
explanatory text.  (The paperback version is a mere $5.00)  When I give
paleo-talks at schools it's always good to have that female role model right
in print!
