it was amazing

John McPhee's twenty-year journey from one coast of America to the other is documented by way of the geology of the land. This 3-book compilation of "Basin & Range, "In Suspect Terrain", and "Rising from the Plains" is a stylistic odyssey that sweeps the reader through time via geologic upheavals. If you don't want to know more after reading this trio, you weren't paying attention.
