4. Roadside Geology of Arizona
Author: by Halka Chronic
Published at: Mountain Press; 1st edition (June 15, 1983)
The rise of mountains and the spread of deserts has marked the geologic history of Arizona. Landscapes that we see today are here because of landscapes of the past, and because of tremendous forces deep within the earth, forces that carry continents into collisions and then drag them apart again, forces of heat and pressure and the slow churning boil of the earth’s interior.
Landscape features result, too, from more comprehensible, more recent forces: the unending attack of water and wind and frost, the building of volcanoes, the short-term geologic happenings like landslides and rockfalls, earthquakes and floods, and a gopher digging a hole.
5. Primary Composition Book: Dotted Midline and Picture Space | Grades K-2 Composition School Exercise Book | 100 Story Pages (Colorful Rainbows Series for kids) (Pretty Primary Notebooks for Girls Only)
Author: by Maxwell Gumpers
Published at: Independently published (May 9, 2020)
The geologic panorama of Texas is as wide as the state is big, sweeping from volcanic mesas and thrusting mountains in the west to red canyons of the Panhandle, along tropical sand barriers of the Gulf Coast, and across central limestone plateaus onto hard granitic terrain in the center of the state.
Texas is bless with rocks of all ages, as well as an incredible array of natural geologic resources. Darwin Spearing will tell you about the rocks as you come to them-describing what they are, when they formed, what they mean, and how they fit into the big picture of the geology of Texas.
7. Assembling California (Annals of the Former World)
Author: by John McPhee
Published at: Farrar, Straus and Giroux; 1st edition (February 1, 1994)
At various times in a span of fifteen years, John McPhee made geological field surveys in the company of Eldridge Moores, a tectonicist at the University of California at Davis. The result of these trips is Assembling California, a cross-section in human and geologic time, from Donner Pass in the Sierra Nevada through the golden foothills of the Mother Lode and across the Great Central Valley to the wine country of the Coast Ranges, the rock of San Francisco, and the San Andreas family of faults.
The two disparate time scales occasionally intersectin the gold disruptions of the nineteenth century no less than in the earthquakes of the twentiethand always with relevance to a newly understood geologic history in which half a dozen large and separate pieces of country are seen to have drifted in from far and near to coalesce as California.
McPhee and Moores also journeyed to remote mountains of Arizona and to Cyprus and northern Greece, where rock of the deep-ocean floor has been transported into continental settings, as it has in California. Global in scope and a delight to read, Assembling California is a sweeping narrative of maps in motion, of evolving and dissolving lands.
8. Aerial Geology: A High-Altitude Tour of North America’s Spectacular Volcanoes, Canyons, Glaciers, Lakes, Craters, and Peaks
Author: by Mary Caperton Morton
Published at: Timber Press; 2nd prt. edition (October 4, 2017)
Get your head into the clouds with Aerial Geology. The New York Times Book ReviewAerial Geology is an up-in-the-sky exploration of North America’s 100 most spectacular geological formations. Crisscrossing the continent from the Aleutian Islands in Alaska to the Great Salt Lake in Utah, Mary Caperton Morton brings you on a fantastic tour, sharing aerial and satellite photography, explanations on how each site was formed, and details on what makes each landform noteworthy.
Maps and diagrams help illustrate the geological processes and help clarify scientific concepts. Fact-filled, curious, and way more fun than the geology you remember from grade school, Aerial Geology is a must-have for the insatiably curious, armchair geologists, million-mile travelers, and anyone who has stared out the window of a plane and wondered what was below.
9. Basin and Range
Author: by John McPhee
Published at: Farrar, Straus and Giroux; Reissue edition (January 1, 1982)
The first of John McPhee’s works in his series on geology and geologists, Basin and Range is a book of journeys through ancient terrains, always in juxtaposition with travels in the modern worlda history of vanished landscapes, enhanced by the histories of people who bring them to light.
The title refers to the physiographic province of the United States that reaches from eastern Utah to eastern California, a silent world of austere beauty, of hundreds of discrete high mountain ranges that are green with junipers and often white with snow.
The terrain becomes the setting for a lyrical evocation of the science of geology, with important digressions into the plate-tectonics revolution and the history of the geologic time scale.
10. Roadside Geology of Wisconsin
Author: by Robert H. Dott
Published at: Mountain Press; 1st edition (June 15, 2004)
Robert H.Dott Jr. and John W. Attig wrote Roadside Geology of Wisconsin to help residents and visitors alike “envision mastodons roaming in front of glaciers 12,000 years ago, feel storm waves pounding sea cliffs 500 million years ago, and hear volcanoes exploding 1,900 million years ago.” With lively prose, detailed maps, black-and-white photographs, and shaded-relief images, the authors succeed in their goal: unraveling the 2,800 million years of geologic history recorded in Wisconsin’s rocks.
Introductory sections describe the geology of each region, and thirty-five road guides locate and interpret the rocks, sediments, and landforms visible from the state’s highways, including the Great River Road in the Mississippi Valley. Roadside Geology of Wisconsin delves further into the geologic history of specific sites such as Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, the Wisconsin Dells, the geologically renowned Baraboo Hills, and more than twenty-five state parks.
Features of and access points to the Ice Age National Scenic Trail are noted.

12. Roadside Geology of Minnesota
Author: by Richard W. Ojakangas
Published at: Mountain Press; First edition (September 15, 2009)
You may have heard that Minnesotas ten thousand lakes are the hoofprints of Paul Bunyans big blue ox, Babe. Dont you believe it! Writes author Dick Ojakangas. Though the lakes, which formed at the end of the most recent ice age, may be Minnesotas most famous features, the glaciated countryside disguises a much longer history of volcanoes and plate collisionsnot surprising when you learn that Minnesota was at the active edge of the fledgling North American continent for several billion years.
Roadside Geology of Minnesota steers you over glacial moraines and till plains to some of the states unparalleled geologic features, such as the Morton Gneiss, once thought to be the oldest rock on Earth; the St. Peter Sandstone, one of the purest sandstones in the world; the banded iron-formation, the source of iron for the Great Lakes steel industry; and the ancient shorelines of Glacial Lake Agassiz, one of the largest glacial lakes ever to have existed in North America.
The books introduction presents an overview of Minnesotas geologic history, and forty-two road guides discuss the landforms and rocks visible from a car window and at nearby waysides and parks, including Pipestone National Monument, Grand Portage National Monument, and Voyageurs National Park.
13. Roadside Geology of Idaho (Roadside Geology Series)
Author: by David Alt
Published at: Mountain Press; 1st edition (June 15, 1989)
Few states pack so many different rocks into such a small area as Idaho. The ancient sedimentary formations of northern Idaho, the Idaho batholith in the central part of the state, the continental hot spot track and newly discovered meteorite impact crater of the volcanic Snake River Plain, and the Active faults of the Basin and Range province are all chapters in an exciting geologic story.
Both authors know the rocks of Idaho well through many years of active research and they related the story with authority, verve, and their usual style. Roadside Geology of Idaho is a book for laymen to enjoy and for geologists to use.

15. Roadside Kansas: A Traveler's Guide to its Geology and Landmarks?Second Edition, Revised and Updated
Author: by Rex Buchanan
Published at: University Press of Kansas; 2nd edition (March 5, 2010)
Two decades after its first publication, Roadside Kansas remains the premier guide to the geology, natural resources, landmarks, and landscapes along nine of the Sunflower State’s major highways. During that span, however, many aspects of the Kansas landscape changed: the growth of some towns and near disappearance of others, the expansion of highways, the development of industry.
Even the rocks themselves changed in places as erosion took its relentless toll. More broadly, there have been changes in the science of geology. This new edition reflects all of these changes and thoroughly updates the previous edition in ways that reinforce its preeminent status.
Covering more than 2,600 miles, Buchanan and McCauley organize their book by highway and milepost markers, so that modern-day explorers can follow the road logs easily, learning about the land as they travel through the state. Featuring more than 100 photographs, drawings, and maps, the book also provides deft descriptions of fascinating contemporary and historical features to be seen all across Kansas.
