Other titles in the Roadside Geology series:
Roadside Geology of Utah (Roadside Geology)
Synopses & Reviews
Informative travel companions about roadside terrain and geology with photos, diagrams, and glossary.
Book News Annotation:
If the states had been published in order of geological interest Utah would have been first. Halka (Pages of stone) writes gracefully and competently of the state--most of the interest lies in the eastern and southern wedge. The land forms here are extraordinarily dramatic and are visible in intimate detail owing to the lack of forest cover. The series neglects a good index map. No bibliography.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Professional geologists write and edit the "Roadside Geology" books for people who are not geologists but would like to learn something about the rocks and landforms around them. Each book begins with an introductory chapter that briefly reviews the rocks and landscapes of its state. The remaining chapters provide a detailed discussion of state regions and end with a series of road guides.
