Ancient Landscapes of South Texas: Hiding in Plain Sight

ByJuan L. GonzalezRoseann Bacha-Garza

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
In this book about the Ancient Landscapes of South Texas, we travel from deep time at the forming of the solar system all the way to the Algal mats that renew themselves with each tidal cycle. We explore the evidence of our changing landscape. Ancient beaches and drowned shorelines, volcanoes and shifting sand, giant oysters and mammoths, petrified forests and thousand-year-old living trees, tiny zircon crystals and a powerful river are part of our natural landscape. Juxtaposed with this is how this landscape has, for millennia, shaped the lives of people in the past. Today, in the Anthropocene, we see how human activities, dating largely from the Industrial Revolution, changed the earth’s landscape and ecosystems.
