Gold, silver, gems, meteorites, fossils, fertile valleys and stony outcrops. There is more geodiversity within the small state of Connecticut than in most states in the nation. In eight entertaining essays, geologist Jelle Zeilinga de Boer shows how this diversity of rocks, minerals, land forms and soils is the very basis of the state's history and culture, shaping the landscape around us, influencing the habitats and species we see and creating scenery and geological attractions admired and visited by many people. Soils in the Central Valley fueled the state's development as an agricultural powerhouse, and ores discovered in the Highlands triggered industrial development and led to manufacturing eminence in the 19th century. The Statue of Liberty rests on Stony Creek granite and buildings of Portland brownstone predominate New York City. Geology also plays a cultural role, from its inspiration on art to its significance in folklore, and in providing a sense of place and identity for local communities. Stories in Stone recounts the marvels of Connecticut's geologic diversity and its impact on the lives of the people who have made Connecticut their home. With fifty illustrations and twelve color plates.
