Editorial Reviews


“This excellent book is well written, thoroughly researched, and extensively documented, and has ample, clear illustrations and an attractive layout. It provides a good introduction to ichnology, a close look at the UCM site and its fossils, and a chronicle of how a determined group of citizen scientists can salvage and save a world-class fossil locality.”
Fossil News

“The Union Chapel fossil site (now known as the Steven C. Minkin Paleozoic Footprint Site) is globally important as the first large Carboniferous tracksite discovered in the world and as the first significant Paleozoic tracksite found in the eastern United States.”
—Hartmut Haubold, Institute of Geosciences, Martin-Luther-University, Germany

“The collection and cataloging of fossil trackway material from the Union Chapel Mine has provided a unique opportunity for the professional and the amateur paleontological communities to share in a scientifically significant undertaking. Determined efforts by members of the Alabama Paleontological Society to salvage the mine’s rich and taxonomically diverse fossil vertebrate and invertebrate trackways before the impending reclamation of the site has resulted in a treasure trove of material that should provide important insights into the paleoecology of Coal-Age Alabama for many years to come.”
—Jim Lacefield, author of Lost Worlds in Alabama Rocks: A Guide to the State’s Ancient Life and Landscapes 

Footprints in Stone offers something for everyone. From the youngest amateur scientist to university-level paleontology students, the story of the discovery and preservation of the Minkin site is a good read that will both surprise and teach readers about a unique period of earth history that is preserved in central Alabama.”
—Douglas W. Haywick, associate professor of geology, Department of Earth Sciences, University of South Alabama
