Summary: "As John McPhee noted in "In Suspect Terrain", one of the unintended consequences of large highways is how much they help geologists -- and casual travellers -- learn about geology by exposing geological strata in roadcuts. There are no better books for roadside geologizing than the Roadside Geology series. When I had a car, a copy of the appropriate title from the series was always on the dashboard, ready for consultation whenever an interesting formation or landscape appeared around the next bend."
