About this book

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 land-forms. 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"
