This book gives a clear, concise survey of geology and illustrates these hard-to-imagine forces with callouts to geologic features of the Northeastern United States

This book gives a clear, concise survey of geology and illustrates these hard-to-imagine forces with callouts to geologic features of the Northeastern United States. It's much easier to understand forces that build up over millions if years if you can good out and look at the results. By the same token, if you live between New Jersey and Maine, you can find out really neat things about your area that are literally under your nose.

WRITTEN IN STONE As Baltica approached and finally collided with Laurentia, one last terrane was added to New England, probably the most mysterious of all. The terrane is called Avalonia, after the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland, which is part of its domain

  • I can't recommend this book highly enough for nerds of the Northeastern United States (such as myself).

    This book gives a clear, concise survey of geology and illustrates these hard-to-imagine forces with callouts to geologic features of the Northeastern United States. It's much easier to understand forces that build up over millions if years if you can good out and look at the results. By the same token, if you live between New Jersey and Maine, you can find out really neat things about your area that are literally under your nose.

    It's a good book if you're curious about geology.

  • Interested in geology? This is by far the best account I have found of the complicated geology of America's east coast. And there's the added bonus of being written by a father-daughter team of fine writers. Chet Raymo is primarily known as an astronomer -- he brings a deep-time philosophical perspective to the story of our past.

  • First off, this book was probably intended for Tourists. The lay. The casual reader somewhat interested in the targeted area's mountain history. As such, its simply a big hit!

    One reader said "boring in parts"? It's a small short book. I couldn't put it down. I suppose that reviewer might find Dr. Charles Merguerian more facinating. Look him up if you're aspiring for your PhD in the subject.

    This book was a quick fantastic read, easy for those who know little about the subject and highly informative for it's brevity.

    I vote this book most likely to make you pick up another book on Geological History!

    What higher praise is there?

  • If you live in the Northeast this is for you!

  • i ordered this book for our library and have been very impressed with it. Relatively easy to understand and good illustrations, though I do wish the pictures of geological formations were real and in color instead of drawn. Great info about how our earth is a constantly changing environment. Makes my life feel so much shorter!

  • This book presents in straight forward language a very complex geological story in a way accessible to the layman. If you have walked on these rocks and looked beneath your feet wondering how they, and you, came to be here, this book contributes a lot to your understanding. I'll walk on them with much more satisfaction now, and I know I'll go back to this book over and over again to gain a greater appreciation of the natural world.

  • This book is an accessible approach to what can be a very technical subject.

  • I'm not a geologist. Yet the grandeur of the earth's history fascinates me. This book is very accessible to the lay person with little or no technical background in geology.

    The only thing I would suggest is have a computer nearby while you're reading it. There are nice drawings, but no photographs in this book. I would have loved some colored photos, but in this day and age it's just as easy to do a little on-line research on the things mentioned in the book.

    I would highly recommend this book for the arm-chair geologists out there!
