About this book

This text tells the story of the history of the earth and the development of its landforms, mountains, rivers, and oceans using geological features of the National Parks of the United States. This edition has been significantly expanded to cover the historical and cultural aspects of the parks and monuments, and also includes improved illustrations to make the book more accessible to students. It assumes a minimal science background, and is designed particularly to teach geology by example, using some of the most spectacular geologic features in the world.

Kiver brings you right into a park so that you can see how the earth has moved, view the flora and fauna, relive the drama of the early peoples, and marvel at the foresight and courage of those who fought to save the parks for succeeding generations.--Nancy Wolfson; Natural Areas Journal; (Vol. 20; No. 3; 2000)
