The second part reviews almost all the impotant terrestrial reptiles and mammal found near the Eocene-Oligocene boundary in the White River Chronofauna,from the turtles, snakes, and lizards, to the common rodent, carnivores, artiodactyls, and perissodactyls. This is the first comprehensive treatment of these rocks in over sixty years." From the publisher. Owner's signature inside.
