    1. This one was a present from my daughter. As someone who travels Wisconsin for work - I have found this to be a handy guide. Since I started trail running in the Southern Unit of the Kettle Moraine, I have found myself looking things up more often. Everyone needs to know what an Esker is??

    2. A great reference to the unique geology of Wisconsin. The geologic history of the state is well laid out, and finding rocks and fossils is made easy. Highly recommend this one to anyone interested in Wisconsin's natural history.

    3. a great quick reference for amateur geologists, especially vacationers, so keep it in your car while you're passing through the cheese state. a little light on the more intricate details, but it wouldn't be a "quick" reference with them.

    4. Features some interesting locations.Omits many of my own favorites, which is probably a blessing in disguise.
