A Book Review by John Bradford Branney: Rising from the Plains by John McPhee

Rising from the Plains Rising from the Plains by John McPhee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book, it was about the Rocky Mountains, Wyoming, geology, and one of the great Rocky Mountain geologists of all time. His name was David Love.

The author took us through a journey about David Love's life and then the author took us on a journey with David Love where he describes some of the geology and events that went on in Wyoming in the past 2.5 billion years.

This book is recommended for those scientifically or geologically inclined. The author is very limited on describing the geologic terms he uses in the book so if you are not a geologist, have a geologic dictionary close by. Two thumbs up.
