About this book

Filled with fun facts, fascinating histories, and atmospheric photography, Aerial Geology is an up-in-the-sky exploration of North America's 100 most spectacular geological formations.

Crisscrossing the continent from the Aleutian Islands in Alaska to the Great Salt Lake in Utah and to the Chicxulub Crater in Mexico, Mary Caperton Morton brings you on a fantastic tour, sharing aerial and satellite photography, explanations on how each site was formed, and details on what makes each landform noteworthy. Maps and diagrams help illustrate the geological processes and clarify scientific concepts.

Fact-filled, curious, and way more fun than the geology you remember from grade school, Aerial Geology is a must-have for the insatiably curious, armchair geologists, million-mile travellers, and anyone who has stared out the window of a plane and wondered what was below.

Biography

Mary Caperton Morton is a freelance science and travel writer and a regular contributor to EARTH magazine. Mary also inspires people to see more of the world with her blog Travels with the Blonde Coyote. In her 10 years as a road warrior nomad, Mary hiked in all 50 states and evolved from a girl who looks up at the mountains to a woman who climbs to the summits. She now lives at 8,000 feet in Big Sky, Montana. When she's not at the keyboard, you can find her outside, hiking, skiing, and mountaineering.
