The Poconos - A natural history guide

Author: Robert Halma and Carl S Oplinger
Stars: 5
Review by: MApgar

A physiological history of how the Poconos region came to form, along with a human history along in the background. The 'Lehigh Valley' one is good too, if only because we're so awfully messed up historically and they went into that a little, but this is great for adequately putting together what may be to some a fairly complicated series of processes. A lot went into the Poconos - multiple orogenies, erosion, glaciation, etc. and this covers it well along with native plants, fossils, and other things.
