I'm looking for a certain citation style and having trouble finding it in LaTeX.  I'd appreciate a pointer if anyone has one.

In some books (for instance in Donald's bio of Lincoln) the citations are not in the text body, so there is no [1]-type notation after the sentence.  Instead, at the back back of the book is a list, which contains for any citation a couple of words from the referenced sentence and then the source.

For instance, suppose there appears on page 100 a paragraph containing, "His legs were so long and his pants so short that soldiers could see his hairy ankles above his socks."  In the back of the book the citations come as a list, and one item on that list might be, "\textit{soldiers could see} OR, C Dunkin, p 1031."

Is there a LaTeX style for that?  Ideal would be if in the page header containing that citation it gave a page range for the citations, perhaps here "Pages 98-103" or perhaps "Chapter Two".

Thank you,
