MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book is a 'popular geology' of Missouri. . . . It is authoritative and comprehensive, as well as up-to-date. Professional geologists traveling through Missouri or professors planning field trips will find it useful, and . . . beginning geology students and interested non-professionals should be able to read, understand, and learn."--"Journal of Geological Education"


"Missouri Geology fills an empty niche in the literature of Missouri's natural history. It is a glove-compartment guide for anyone who has ever gazed, curious and uncomprehending, at the layer cake formations in a highway cut or a construction site."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch


"The book leaves no major aspect of the state's geology untouched. . . . As a laymen's guide, "Missouri Geology" fills an empty niche in the literature of Missouri's natural history. It is a glove-compartment guide for anyone who has ever gazed, curious and uncomprehending, at the layer-cake formations in a highway cut or construction site."--"St. Louis Post-Dispatch "

"Tightly written and with no academic flab to speak of, "Missouri Geology" is well illustrated with photos and tables, managing a few surprises along the way. . . . But, the real pleasure in the book is not in the statistics or historical facts, but in learning why things in nature happen the way they do."--"Columbia Daily Tribune"


"If you want an up-to-date, comprehensive, general book that tells all, look into adding "Missouri Geology" by A. G. Unklesbay and Jerry D. Vineyard to your bookshelf. . . . The appeal of the book is that it reads easily enough that a person without geological education and without an in-person instructor could take this book and give himself a pretty sound basic education."--"River Hills Traveler"

"If you want to know more about the geology of Missouri, read "Missouri Geology." . . . Written in non-technical language, the book is a combination of historical, cultural and economic aspects of an entrancing state."--"St. Joseph News-Press"
