The Bare Bones

The Bare Bones: An Unconventional Evolutionary History of the Skeleton was a labor of love that took over 6 years to write, illustrate, and publish.

Hard Cover versions are available at Indiana University Press and

There is a Kindle version.

Given the nature of vertebrate paleontology and that I am human, I wanted to provide updates and correct mistakes that I have come across since the book’s publication: see The Bare Bones Updates & Corrections.
