A Review of the State's Geology and Its Influence on Geography and Human Activity
Second Edition
Gwen Schultz
With a foreword by James M. Robertson



A new printing of a geology classic—now with a
full-color cover


Most people in Wisconsin share a deep appreciation of the shape and composition of their familiar landscapes —the abundance of fresh water, the fertile soils, the northern forests, the varied landforms. All these features relate to a process that is long, complex, and still in progress. Wisconsin’s Foundations is just the book for a broad audience of people who want to know more about the origins, evolution, and geological underpinnings of the Wisconsin landscape. This book has received awards from the Wisconsin Historical Society and the Council for Wisconsin Writers.

“At the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey, I see on an almost daily basis the hunger that the public has for the kind of understandable information Gwen Schultz has supplied.” —from the foreword by James M. Robertson, Wisconsin State Geologist
