A Guide to the Geology of Baxter State Park and Katahdin

The guide to the geology of Baxter State Park is a complete update, with modern geological concepts, of the bulletin last published in 1972. With over 75 color photos, this 80-page book describes the geological processes recorded in bedrock and glacial materials that produced the dramatic landscape of the Park. Five recommended geological hikes help the reader explore and understand the geology of this spectacular area. Two shaded relief geologic maps at a scale of 1:100,000 vividly portray the bedrock that underlies the landscape and the surficial materials draped above.
