"White and red sandstones, green shales, and pink granites are hard to appreciate in black and white. Two-color maps cannot do justice to the many patterns in the bedrock geology. A state with places like the Painted Wall, the Florissant Fossil Beds, and the Maroon Bells deserves a color edition. That is why Mountain Press teamed up with authors Felicie Williams and Halka Chronic to produce a color edition of Roadside Geology of Colorado. The updated text includes information about new discoveries, such as the mammoth fossils at Snowmass. This third edition is a must-have book for your geology collection"--Provided by publisher.

Driving through Nevada, you may be miles from nowhere, but you are never far from an interesting rock, the shoreline of an ice age lake, or an active or historic mine. The Silver State has some of the most diverse geology in the United States, and much of it lies in plain sight thanks to the arid climate of the Great Basin. Geologic forces continue to shape Nevada, stretching it apart and bringing magma near the surface. Earthquakes periodically rock its lonely outposts, creating some of the biggest fault scarps in the world. With the help of Roadside Geology of Nevada, you can appreciate geologic features along more than thirty of Nevada's highways.
