Outcroppings

John McPhee, Tom Till, Christopher Merrill
Beginning with a fascinating introduction by McPhee on how he started writing about the West, this book is a topically arranged collection dealing with the geology and ecology of the western United States. It includes selections from McPhee's Rising from the Plains, Basin and Range, and Encounters with the Archdruid . The accompanying photographs, most of natural scenery, are excellent, but their captions are sometimes too spare. One also longs for photographs of the major protagonists, described so well by McPhee, and for perhaps a map or two. Overall, an attractive, nicely done work.
