Visitors planning a trip to Florida may envision the state's entertainment spots, amazing natural areas, and stunning beaches, but they may not consider examining Florida's remarkable geology. Yet, according to the authors of a new book about Florida's geology, "Of all the fifty states, with the exception of volcanic Hawaii, Florida is the land most recently emerged from the sea, and it is covered with geologic evidence of its submarine past." An example is the Florida Everglades, which owe their existence to the coastal ridge that keeps fresh water in and salt water out. The three authors of the newly published Roadside Geology of Florida take readers on fascinating drives around the Sunshine State. Exploring some of the most easily accessible of the state's astounding geologic features, readers can learn of beach and coral reef formation; visit amazing fossil deposits; view sinkholes, springs, and caverns; and explore a sea of waving grass. The latest in this one-of-a-kind series, Roadside Geology of Florida divides the state into five regions, following Florida's roads to its geological wonders. With its concise descriptions, clearly written explanations, and abundant color photographs and illustrations, this book will enthrall readers as they tour the Sunshine State.
