Synopsis: Classic study of Isle Royale's geological history, its landscape, and the shifting of rocks and minerals which produced one of the most beautiful islands in North America. Includes information on the effects of time, pressure, and glaciers on the island. Maps, photos, illustrations.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: As we pick up an agate from the beach and admire its color and pattern, we can reflect upon the enormous amount of change that has taken place since it originated as an amygdule in a lava flow a billion or so years ago. The time from the volcanic eruptions to the coming of the glacier that may have brought that agate to its resting place, however, was itself enormous, even in the geologic sense--nearly one fourth of the age of the earth itself. And although things are relatively quiet on Isle Royale at the present time, geologically speaking, changes will continue to take place slowly but certainly. Storm waves will continue to batter the shoreline cliffs, wearing them back. Winter frost will loosen rock fragments on the hillsides for the summer rains to wash downslope. The streams will deposit silt in the landlocked lakes until they are filled and cease to exist as bodies of water. These continuing changes take place so slowing that they are nearly imperceptible to us....
