About the Author:

Max Reams is Professor of Geology at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, IL. He has taught geology in Illinois for over four decades. He has a passion to help others understand the natural world and our responsibility to be proper stewards of the only planet most of us will likely ever occupy. Max has a B.A. in Zoology, B.S. in Geology, and M.S. in Geology, all from the University of Kansas at Lawrence. His Ph.D. in Geology is from Washington University in St. Louis, MO. Max's specializations include the study of caves and sedimentary rocks, as well as geological education. He has numerous professional presentations and publications. He is married to Carol. They have three children and five grandchildren. Believing that the best geologists are those who have seen the most rocks, Max and Carol have traveled widely in the United States and abroad. They also do volunteer work by holding religious services in retirement centers and premarital counseling.
