Book Overview
Tripling as a geology primer, an autobiography, and a panorama of the nation, bejeweled with splendid vignettes and set-pieces, Annals of the Former World offers a view of America like no other. . . . Yield to its geopoetry and have your eyes opened to a barely known aspect of the continent.--Roy Porter, Los Angeles Times Book Review. A Pulitzer Prize-winning book. 25 maps.
