Editorial Reviews

"An incredibly fascinating and beautiful look at many of my favorite geologic playgrounds—a whole new perspective on the places and formations we love and how these unique landscapes were formed." —Jimmy Chin, National Geographic photographer, The North Face athlete, director of award-winning documentary, Meru

"An unusual, engaging book, enlivened by stories and beautiful aerial views, that shows clearly why geology is best understood from the air." —QT Luong, photographer, author of bestselling Treasured Lands: A Photographic Odyssey Through America’s National Parks

"Morton’s guide to amazing North American land formations would be notable for its gorgeous aerial photos alone, but it also contains a wealth of information on each location’s history." —Booklist

"Get your head into the clouds with Aerial Geology. . . . What better way to introduce geology to any reluctant science student than a book full of breathtaking ’who knew?’ moments. Luckily, the writer and mountaineer (and, appropriately enough, resident of Big Sky, Mont.) Mary Caperton Morton knows. Take in the natural splendors of the view from an airplane window: This generously photographed volume even offers flight patterns that will reveal our earthly treasures." —The New York Times Book Review

"Geological history and information about each feature offers readers a richer understanding of the landscape than a coffee table book would provide. However, it must be said that the most eye-catching aspect of the book is its glorious photographs. . . . a reminder that these spectacular landscapes are, if not just around the corner, relatively close to home." —NYBG’s Plant Talk

"Offering a bird’s eye view that makes geology come alive, science and travel writer Mary Caperton Morton’s book feels like a personal helicopter ride across North America. It’s an extensive journey that covers Alaska’s Aleutian Islands to Maine’s Mount Katahdin to Mexico’s Chicxulub Crater, among many other breathtaking formations. . . . filled with beautiful photographs and fun facts." —Smithsonian Magazine

"It’s a visual feast. . . . A beautiful and massive tome. . . . This book would make an ideal gift for anyone who has an affinity for earth processes and breathtaking pictures." —EARTH Magazine

"Well-written. . . . beautifully illustrated." —GeoTripper

"Filled with incredible images, descriptive illustrations and fact-filled, geology-based explanations of how each site was formed and what makes each landform noteworthy." —Stuck at the Airport  

"Adventure armchair travel. . . . beautiful, fun, educational, and a great, great gift." —Cathy Langer of the Tattered Cover

"We highly encourage you to pick up a copy of Aerial Geology to read and enjoy. Or better yet, send it as a gift to your friends and family. Earth is an amazing place. Once you read Aerial Geology, you’ll have a whole new appreciation for our wonderful Planet." —A Mountain Journey
