"Travel the highways and see the terrain formed by elemental forces - limestone cliffs layered by ancient seas, boulders left by glaciers from the ice age, mysterious sink-holes, everlasting wells - all in this fascinating kaleidoscope of geology, history, pioneer tales, amusing anecdotes, and incidental information about the state." - Zula Bennington Greene, columnist "Peggy of the Flint Hills" "Valuable information... well organized... and well written." - H. L. James, author of Scenic Trips to the Geologic Past "A book that has great heart and obviously is a work of love....
