More About Roadside Geology of Georgia by Pamela J. W. Gore; William Witherspoon
 
 
 
Overview
Ride along with geologists Pamela Gore and Bill Witherspoon

on this extraordinary tour of the Peach State's varied

terrain. In 35 detailed and densely illustrated road guides,

the authors examine Georgia's fascinating geology and

reveal the stories that lie beneath the surface.

You'll be amazed at Georgia's geological diversity, from

its shifting barrier islands along the coast to the sandstone

ridges in its northwest corner. At the Cumberland Island

National Seashore you'll find the ruins of Dungeness, the

once-magnificent Carnegie estate built of local mineral

resources, and encounter wild horses grazing among

windswept dunes. In Atlanta, the white whaleback of granite

called Stone Mountain will impress you with its protruding

cat's eye minerals and stony layers that are sloughing off like

the layers of an onion. In the Blue Ridge Mountains you

can witness Amicalola Falls, one of the highest cascading

waterfalls east of the Mississippi River, and Tallulah Gorge,

one the deepest gorges in the eastern United States. And

in the iconic Okefenokee Swamp of south Georgia, you'll

wade through the gator-filled blackwater of one of the

largest wetlands in North America.

With its engaging prose and 250-plus color photos,

maps, and figures, Roadside Geology of Georgia takes you

beyond the rocks to unearth the billion-year history of the

Empire State of the South.
