  • Wisconsins Foundations

    A classic is back in print—not just for geology majors!

    Most people in Wisconsin share a deep appreciation of the shape and composition of their familiar landscapes-the abundance of fresh water, the fertile soils, the northern forests, the varied landforms. All these features relate to a process that is long, complex, and still in progress. Wisconsin's Foundations is just the book for a broad audience of interested people who want to know more about the origins, evolution, and geological underpinnings of the Wisconsin landscape.

    "At the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey, I see on an almost daily basis the hunger that the public has for the kind of understandable information Gwen Schultz has supplied."—from the foreword by James M. Robertson, Wisconsin State Geologist

    Gwen Schultz is emeritus professor of geography at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and author of several books including Ice Age Lost and The Bucky Badger Story.

    This book has received awards from the Wisconsin Historical Society and the Council for Wisconsin Writers.

  • Roadside Geology of Utah

    No one can ignore the colorful rocks of Utah: the Vermilion Cliffs of Wingate sandstone, the snow white and salmon pink bluffs of Navajo sandstone, or the yellow and pink rhyolite of Big Rock Candy Mountain. Roadside Geology of Utah is a riveting account of the forces that made the brilliant cliffs, mountains, and canyonlands we see today. The author's smooth prose brings the rocks of Utah and their long history into sharp and enjoyable focus.

  • Roadside Geology of New Mexico

    The Land of Enchantment, New Mexico is as varied in its scenery as its nickname suggests. With desert lowlands in the south and high, hoary peaks in the north, with rugged volcanic uplands and colorful plateaus, with high plains along its eastern border, and with a great rift valley that quite literally slashes the state in two, New Mexico presents many faces to its residents and visitors--faces that can largely be laid at the doorstep of the state's varied geology.
