Geology of the Lewis and Clark Trail in North Dakotaby John W. Hoganson, Edward C. Murphy (Joint Author)
Lewis and Clark spent 213 days in North Dakota, more than in any other state, and their journals reflect copious observations of its geology, including their collection of fossils, rocks, and minerals. Hoganson (paleontologist for the North Dakota Geological Survey and curator of state fossil collection, North Dakota Heritage Center, Bismarck) and Murphy (assistant director of the North Dakota Geological Survey) discuss Lewis and Clark's observations in their lengthy historical introduction to this volume. The remainder of this accessible, well-illustrated, and knowledgeable text describes the geology of their state. Many color photographs are included. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
