Review:

“Anderson has prepared a well-written, balanced, nicely illustrated, and up-to-date book on Iowa geology. Organization is chronological through about three billion years of geologic time, starting in the Precambrian when the area was vastly different from today, continuing into the Paleozoic and Mesozoic when shallow seas were dominant leaving a rich fossil record, and finally into the Cenozoic climaxed by the great glacial advances. Numerous clear and simple photographs, maps, cross sections, stratigraphic sections, landscape sketches, and especially skillful drawings of fossils in their ancient environments enrich the book. Coal, limestone, gypsum, sand and gravel, clay, and ground water resources are described in summary, but substantially. An excellent bibliography of more than 500 references is included. This incomparable book is a masterful synthesis of geological knowledge scattered through numerous publications that begin in the early days of exploration in the central and western US. It will have wide appeal not only to professional geologists but to the interested public, engineers, and developers. and high school and college teachers.”—Choice



“The only authoritative overview of Iowa's geologic record. Anderson is to be commended for integrating the latest geological literature into his text. His coverage is so current, comprehensive, and authoritative that professionals as well as rock and fossil enthusiasts will each need a copy.”—Brian F. Glenister, A. K. Miller Professor of Geology Emeritus, University of Iowa
