Summary
"This guide book is intended to provide that evidence [of past events] of the geology of northern New England for the non-specialist. We will visit some of the classic outcrops of northern New England, revealing the clues from the rocks and what these clues say about the larger story of crustal evolution of the northern Appalachian Mountains ... I've attempted to pick stops that are easily accessible and on public land. Most are within easy walking distance from parking locations"--
