"This text will supplement field experience in my field methods course. I really like the color geologic maps and always appreciate an inexpensive text for my students as they have many to buy each semester. I feel the text covers many important topics clearly and concisely, and is well written with well-thought-out illustrations." -- Abigail Semple, Black Hills State University
