In view of this, I thought it would be interesting to share my recollections on the construction of the book, to discuss how it came together, and to review the trials and tribulations and ups and downs of this massive, complex project.
Indeed, I’d been sent copies of the AMNH guidebooks penned by Lowell Dingus, Gene Gaffney, John Maisey and others (Dingus et al.Pliny Moody, who discovered these tracks, attributed them to “Noah’s raven,” and Edward Hitchcock of Amherst College, who began collecting them in 1835, considered them to be those of some giant extinct bird.
