Ancient Earth and the First Ancestors

by Ron Morton and Carl Gawboy

In this sequel to Talking Rocks an earth scientist and Ojibwe elder travel across Minnesota exploring the ancient rocks that make up a large part of the state. As the geologist describes how these rocks formed and bring to life the ancient worlds they created, the elder, through Native American stories, oral history, culture, and science illustrates how his people had an intimate understanding of, and respect for, these ancient rocks and the land they give shape to. Some of the diverse topics they discuss are the nature of science, holistic geology, mining, science and spirituality, and the legacy of the fur trade.
