No bone left unturned

CALLIE CLARK MILLER ~ Southeast Missourian
GLENALLEN, Mo. -- Even the air smells 70 million years old.
Rich, earthen. Preserved alongside the remnants of long-extinct animals
that once breathed it.
Millions of years' worth of sediment, broken bone and fossils are buried
in a 5-foot-deep hole in remote Bollinger County.
Fifteen years of Guy Darrough's life are in the hole as well. Especially
now, with his team's most recent discoveries, the toil has been worth
every swing of a shovel and minute stroke of a brush.
