Don’t leave home without this book. It rocks!
As you plan road trips this summer, I invite you to consider a copy of Roadside Geology of Missouri. This full-color 288 page book is packed with information about Missouri’s fascinating geology. The state’s geology incorporates glaciated plains, mountains, floodplains, earthquake-formed sand boils, springs, dinosaur fossils, meteorite impact structures, caves, coal, shale, sandstone, limestone, oil, gas and numerous other natural features and resources.
Roadside Geology of Missouri will help you learn about the geology of the state. This book is great to take on vacation in Missouri and they are wonderful when planning your trip. The book is a 6″x9″ paperback loaded with maps, photos, cross-sections, sketches and expert descriptions. Written by Charles G. Spencer and published by Mountain Press Publishing Company in 2011, the book sells for $20 (tax and shipping are extra).
Treat yourself with this new book and the ever popular, Geologic Wonders and Curiosities of Missouri, published by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Geology and Land Survey and you will be ready for a rocking good summer!
