Roadside Geology of Massachusetts explores the geologic history behind the rocks and landforms visible from the state's highways, including tours of Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Boston Harbor, and Mount Greylock. With this book as your guide, examine the eroded remnants of mountains shoved to towering heights by colliding continents 400 million years ago and learn how Ice Age glaciers formed such well-known historic features as Beacon Hill, Walden Pond, and Plymouth Rock.
