The medical group has argued for many years over the foundation of huge craters on this planet. He agreed with Branner that if the crater was not of meteoritic origin, it was the most interesting geological puzzle of the present time. In a hugely readable model, Kathleen Mark recounts the interesting detective tale of the way scientists got here to acknowledge metorite craters, either old and comparatively fresh.

The first book that has been written on the subject on finding and properly identifying true meteorite craters.Because much of the Earth's early historic impact sites have a lot of the same characteristics of volcanic sites,weird land formations,both subsidence,and domes,its a long process to identify a meteorite crater as being a crater.For over 80 years,the ranchers,Indians,and many of the so-called "college professors" all called the Barringer Meteorite Crater,a steam explosion,Coon Butte,and Franklin Hole.Most people saw it from a distance,and wasn't really looked at until the local rancher went looking for some stray cattle,in the late 1870's.Most craters are showing off the results of long term erosion,and the remains of rock formations that are usually much deeper in the earth,than in the local area.

Excellent book! very informative and readable for anyone wanting to know more about this complex area of geology.

A very well writtern and informative book.
You really feel like you are Barrington or Nininger at times, on the trail of a mass find.
Also contains extensive information about craters in several countries outside North America.
