About this book

Geo-Texas succeeds in bringing together astronomy, geology, meteorology, oceanography, and environmental studies in a highly informative, one-of-a-kind guide to earth sciences in the Lone Star State. Eric R. Swanson draws on the latest scientific findings in treating the natural history of Texas from the oldest known rock, through the age of the dinosaurs, to the geologic present, and from the early development of Texas' water and land resources to the current crisis of environmental pollution. In examining Texas natural sciences - and the abiding connection between Texans and their physical surroundings - Geo-Texas is engagingly anecdotal and draws freely on the wry humor with which Texans have always observed and regarded their environment.
