An Introductory Text for Aspiring Film Critics
Cretaceous Fossils of the Atlantic Coastal Plain:
An Identification Guide/Field Manual
Richly supported with observations from critics Roger Ebert, Pauline Kael, A. O. Scott, Janet Maslin, Stanley Kaufmann, John Simon and a host of others, author John Morano has produced an insightful text that will excite not only fledgling critics, but journalism students and film buffs in general.
Co-authored with Dr. Jim Brown and Ralph Johnson, this book presents over 300 museum quality, professionally photographed fossils found mostly from south/central New Jersey, as well as Delaware, Maryland, New York and the surrounding area.
Many of the specimens in this guide have never appeared in books before. Predominately a marine shallow ocean/shore environment, examples of reptile and dinosaur remains are also included.
"Don't Tell Me the Ending! has a great deal of helpful advice for the beginner;
informative and entertaining."
