The Dinosaurs' Last Days: The Cretaceous Extinction
by Harold Clinton Gragg Finally, this is the final chapter in the seemingly never-ending search for the cause of the extinction of the dinosaurs. Fourteen years of research led to the source of the K-T Boundary clay that marked the end of the Cretaceous Period and revealed what actually caused the most massive extinction of life in the history of earth. After moving to Sylacauga, Harold C. Gragg began to study the geology of the region and made some of the most startling discoveries ever made in Alabama. He began discovering meteorite fragments, including the largest Texas Bediasite tektite ever found in Alabama, and his research into the origin of calcite is amazing. This is what happened and why.
