Mason creek is an amazing site. It is rich in fossil invertebrates (including soft bodied animals) and probably contains more different species of insects than anywhere else in the world (at least at the time when I studied there it was known as having more different species of insects than anywhere else in the world) was It is also the place where the famous "Tully Monster" was found. It was Dr. Richardson who first authenticated the bizarre animal.
Those interested in fossils will find this a very worthwhile addition to their library.
Dr. Richardson your spirit lives on.
The artwork is better than expected and helps a great deal in the identification of specimens, however the inner cover drawings seem rather childish. The photographs do not show a great amount of detail and some of the specimens used seem to be of poor quality.
The text is excellent, the editors and individual authors went way above what I expected to find. Some chapthers were rather long and drawn out(Chap 2) but they still filled a purpose in the overall text of the book.
I would recommend this publication to anyone who has a intrest in the fossils of the Carboniferous found in Northeastern Illinois, none of us probally will not be around to see another book of this type again!
Dr. Richardson would have been proud to see this book and I for one am delighted to see it published in his honor. It is well worth the price and exposes the rest of the world to a fascinating site of Burgess Shale like preservation. It again illustrates how little we know about soft bodied animals of the past as they were rarely preserved.
To the people who were responsible for this excellent book "Thank You".
