About this title


Illustrates and explains the geological history of North America and traces its impact on the continent's natural and human history

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
