We make family trips to the library once a week. Last week I got a book called Over The Mountains; An Aerial View Of Geology by Michael Collier. It’s a book of aerial photographs that are stunningly beautiful. The accompanying text explains the geologic features of the photographs. From the introduction:
“With this book, I’d like to share that aerial perspective on mountains. I’s like to show geologic features of America’s high country that illuminate the theories by which scientists have come to understand our continent. Mostly I’d like to impart a sense of wonder, a tangible sense of the earth, that springs from an intimate knowledge of the land.”
I thoroughly enjoyed the book, both the photographs and the text. If you come across it in your library take a look. Even if you’re not interested in geology you’ll be glad you did.
