With the aid of many photographs and drawings, two University of Minnesota professors tell, in understandable language, the story behind the geological features to be found in Minnesota. They describe the long, dramatic processes which have given the Arrowhead country some of the oldest exposed rock in the world, explain why Minnesota has a larger water area than any other state, and show how the world-famous iron deposits on the Mesabi Range were formed. The authors outline geological excursions through the various sections of the state, pointing out features to watch for on actual field trips. Amateur rock collectors will find descriptions of all the common rocks of the state. The book is equally useful as an introductory text, as a manual for hobbyists, or as a guidebook for tourists.
