Holy moley, folks: I just looked to see what the "price" would be on the
Frick monograph and I see that it's a free PDF download! Amazing! And
there's a huge list of other AMNH papers available online, too. So go get
'em, all ye lovers of bones! (but be forewarned that the Horned Ruminants
is about 300 pp. long). -- Deb Bennett
