Dr. George F. Carter, Texas A&M University, Sacrificial Birds of the American Southwest, research grant


A 1989 F.A.R.M.S. research grant to Dr. George F. Carter of Texas A&M University has yielded a book manuscript entitled Sacrificial Birds of the American Southwest: Chicken, Eagle, Turkey, Macaw, which is being considered for publication by a university press. Some of the ideas discussed by the eight (non-LDS) contributors are significant in relation to the Book of Mormon's report of voyages across the oceans from the Old to the New World.
