If you have ever looked at the landscape and wondered how it was shaped the Roadside Geology series is for you. On a recent motor trip on I-90 across South Dakota we used this book as a guide to magnificent country we were traveling through. We have many books in the series and they are all well written but this particular one is a stand out.

I took a chance and purchased this book in addition to a travel guide. It is organized by highway east to west and north to south. I seemed to be travelling just opposite, so it was a little hard to follow. The information was interesting, although I had a hard time following what is a Brule formation versus a Pierre formation. It includes some facts and history that I enjoyed. To put it in perspective, I am not a geologist and only somewhat interested in rocks and sediment.

Even though the topography of South Dakota can be flat and uninteresting, this book helped me to delve into the underside of I-90 and the Badlands to see the rich complexity of the state. I found it to be very interesting as the author wove a bit of history into the mix as well. Good Book! I'd recommend it for the lay geologist or anybody simply curious to learn more about South Dakota.

The only thing missing is a electronic version, so I can have it on my tablet when I'm out in the field and don't have to carry yet another paper book :)

Otherwise wonderful and going to make this summer's hiking even more enjoyable!

I love this book. I have found things I never knew were in the state. And, believe me, I'm a major booster of SD! I've traveled there, or through there, probably 15-20 times. Great place, reasonably priced (except around Bike Week in Sturgis, First full week in August), lots to see and do.
