Format: Paperback
This is the best book of the Roadside Geology series. Spearing explains not just the location and character of the rock formations one encounters on TX roadways, but the processes which made them. Best of all, he specifically provides the name and formative time period of almost every formation mentioned (e.g., "Triassic Trujillo sandstone") -- avoiding the overgeneralized naming (e.g., "Mesozoic sediment layer") of a few other Roadside Geology volumes. This is certainly a time saver for the rock collector who catalogs his specimens! This book is a must-get for all rock enthusiasts -- even those who have never been to Texas. Now if someone would just write a Roadside Geology of Oklahoma volume...

Format: Paperback
Spearing has written a book that simplifies the complex geology of Texas. He uses simply easy to understand language yet doesn't talk down to the reader.

We keep this book in the car on all Texas road trips. It is fun to stop at the road markers referred to in the text and explore. Traveling with kids is a lot better when they are also reading from the book.

For the person with a good understanding of geology, the book is also an asset. There is enough information to justify the purchase.

In general, a great book

Excellence abounds in this book. The illustrations are good, but the writing is extraordinarily good for a book on a technical subject. I read it through like a fine novel. I've lived in Texas all my life and was surprised that there was so much Texas geology that I didn't know. A must-have for anyone interested in Texas history or geology.
