Landscape exerts a powerful influence on the human psyche. In few places is that effect as strong as in Badlands National Park. The badlands evoke strong feelings. They astonish, frighten, awe, repel, and inspire. What draws us to a surreal land that appears more vision than reality?
This book explores the geology and history of one of South Dakota's most magnificent features, Badlands National Park. The beautiful full-color photographs depict the scenery, wildlife, and fossil remains found in the area.
