From Library Journal:

Redfern takes the reader on a geographic and geologic tour of North America, with a few side excursions. He explains the current geologic theories of continent formation, elaborating on each major topographic feature. He also describes how the physical environment helped to shape the economic and social history of the region. The text is lavishly illustrated. Indeed, the purchase price is probably justified by the pictures alone. The book reads like a good PBS science series, and in fact is tied in with a series beginning this month. Expect a good deal of public interest. Harold D. Shane, Mathematics Dept., Baruch Coll., CUNY

From Publishers Weekly:

Redfern, author of Corridors of Time, examines the geological history of the North American plate, taking the reader across successive geological provinces (active West to passive East). PW found that this book "has brought plate tectonics within the grasp of the lay reader without oversimplification."
