Aerial Geology in the New York Times!

 

Aerial Geology at Phoenix Book in Burlington, VT

In the past two months, I’ve found Aerial Geology in bookstores from Bozeman, Montana to Moab, Utah to Burlington, Vermont. The team at Timber Press has done an incredible job getting it out into the world! This weekend, Aerial Geology is featured in the New York Times Book Review/ Holiday Gift Guide!

“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. – Dominique Browning, NYT

I don’t really comprehend how somebody could be a “reluctant” geologist… the Earth is the coolest planet in the whole Universe! But I do think Aerial Geology makes the perfect gift for just about everybody on your Christmas list! I’ve had a lot of great feedback from kids to grandparents. Pick up a copy at your local bookstore (they probably have it!) or on Amazon (it’s a #1 Best Seller!) or get it from the source… signed copies are $27 plus $5 shipping direct from me.

    Bought a copy today at my local bookstore, Waucoma Books, in little ol’ Hood River, OR. I expected to order a copy but they had some in stock!
