Big Bone Lick: The Cradle of American Paleontology

Big Bone Lick: The Cradle of American

Shawnee legend tells of a herd of huge bison rampaging through the Ohio Valley, laying waste to all in their path. To protect the tribe, a deity slew these great beasts with lightning bolts, finally chasing the last giant buffalo into exile across the Wabash River, never to trouble the Shawnee again. The source of this legend was a peculiar salt lick in present-day northern Kentucky, where giant fossilized skeletons had for centuries lain undisturbed by the Shawnee and other natives of the region. In 1739, the first Europeans encountered this fossil site, which eventually came to be known as Big Bone Lick. The site drew the attention of all who heard of it, including George Washington, Daniel Boone, Benjamin Franklin, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, and especially Thomas Jefferson. The giant bones immediately cast many scientific and philosophical assumptions of the day into doubt, and they eventually gave rise to the study of fossils for biological and historical purposes. Big Bone Lick: The Cradle of American Paleontology recounts the rich history of the fossil site that gave the world the first evidence of the extinction of several mammalian species, including the American mastodon. Big Bone Lick has played many roles: nutrient source, hallowed ground, salt mine, health sp...

Mr. Cooper's paper on Big-Bone Lick,

This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.

Bobby Bobo Got Baptized At The Big Bone Baptist Church (A Short Story)

Bobby Bobo Got Baptized At The Big Bone

The year is 1959 and Bea Pettit is trapped in an unhappy marriage with two children she just doesn’t understand. The only thing that brightens her drab existence is the knowledge that her favorite country and western music star, Bobby Bobo, is going to be baptized at her church. But as with all things, Bea should be careful what she wishes for. Abigail Keam writes about women – funny stories, sad stories, long stories, and short stories. Some of the women triumph–some don’t. It’s as though Ms. Keam is writing about women she has met and is telling their story for them, giving them a voice. In this ‘slice of life’ short story, she shows us a glimpse of the life of a woman, made desperate by the traps she has set for herself.
