"White and red sandstones, green shales, and pink granites are hard to appreciate in black and white. Two-color maps cannot do justice to the many patterns in the bedrock geology. A state with places like the Painted Wall, the Florissant Fossil Beds, and the Maroon Bells deserves a color edition. That is why Mountain Press teamed up with authors Felicie Williams and Halka Chronic to produce a color edition of Roadside Geology of Colorado. The updated text includes information about new discoveries, such as the mammoth fossils at Snowmass. This third edition is a must-have book for your geology collection"--Provided by publisher.

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.

After Hurricane Katrina, the fanlike pile of sand, mud, and silt that formed near a breached levee was unique in the urban environment of New Orleans. Over the 7,500-year history of the modern Mississippi River delta, however, it was just another splay deposit. Author Darwin Spearing explains the geologic forces behind the formation of the delta, shedding light on the human struggle to control the powerful river that breaches its own levees and switches its own deltas. With sections on wetland loss and land subsidence, Roadside Geology of Louisiana is a must-read for understanding the vulnerability of the Mississippi River delta to floods and hurricanes. First published in 1995, Roadside Geology of Louisiana is back in print by popular demand, with several updated sections. The introduction presents an overview of Louisiana's geologic history, and 57 road guides discuss the landforms visible from a car window, including sand ridges, natural levees, oxbow lakes, and the Five Islands salt domes.

From the glacially scoured quartzite ridge that hosts the Appalachian Trail to the spectacular columnar basalt of Orange Mountain, New Jersey packs a boatload of geology into a small area. Its nineteenth-century marl pits were the birthplace of American vertebrate paleontology, bog iron deposits in the Pinelands were used to produce cannonballs for the Revolutionary War, world-famous fluorescent minerals are found with zinc deposits in the Franklin Marble, and the coastal plain sediments contain convincing evidence of the meteorite impact that killed the dinosaurs. This absorbing book opens with an overview of the state's geologic history and proceeds with 13 road guides that unearth the stories behind the state's rocks, sediments, and barrier islands. More than just a guide, Roadside Geology of New Jersey is chock-full of insightful discussions on such timely topics as sea level rise, climate change, and uranium mining. Get the scoop on why so much sand moves during superstorms such as Hurricane Sandy, and learn about more than a century of efforts to stabilize the beaches along the Jersey Shore.
