I like geology as Big History, as social history, and as personal history but I'm bored shitless by love of rocks. Rockhounds who jack off about wankolite and snoroprase collected from the Tedium region bore me. This book gets the World History, Social History, and Personal History without ever being dull rock wank. Geological history of USA told through highway cuttings. Beautifully written.
