The Loom

An Audubon for the Miocene

When I wrote my first book, At the Water’s Edge, I had the good fortune to join forces with Carl Buell, who brought walking whales and fish with fingers to life. Now he has come to the other side, with a blog of his own, complete with pictures. Check it out.

    Thanks so much for the kind words Carl…my own little spot on “The Loom”. Great!

    Well, I read your book, At the Water’s Edge and, sometimes, I thought that the reading was so heavy to understand. It was like if you would not have seen some fossils and other structures, then, you would not understand the text. The images in that book are amazing, but I think that more images were needed to a good understanding.

    See Ya!!
