0mm x 0mm x 0mm

"Authors: Jonathan R. Bryan, Thomas M. Scott, and Guy H. Moore. Walt Disney World, the moon landing, shark attacks these are things the average person readily associates with Florida, but geology . . . ? Not so much. Roadside Geology of Florida is fixing to change that. From the panhandle through the Central Lakes District all the way to the Dry Tortugas, authors Bryan, Scott, and Means lead you through a world of cavernous limestone, roiling springheads, and rock strata containing the remains of some of the strangest animals that ever walked the Earth. The latest in this one-of-a-kind series, the Roadside Geology of Florida is divided into five regions, following Florida s roads to its geological wonders. Along the roads you ll encounter a sinkhole that swallowed several buildings in Winter Park; sand dunes stranded high and dry with no shoreline in sight; and Titanis walleri, a 6-foot-tall, predatory flightless bird. With its concise descriptions, clearly written explanations, and voluminous color photographs and illustrations, this book will enthrall readers as they tour the Sunshine State, which, by the way, is the most recent addition to the North American continent."
