This tome appears to be a combination of 4 of his previous book, Basin and Range, Assembling California, In Suspect Terrain, and Rising from the Plains, plus some added material (40 or so pages) at the end. I say "appear", because he is, at heart, not one of those scientists who puts ideas in nice neat categories, but one of those namby-pamby English majors who abhor organization. I read the last part (written 1998) that gives fascinating insights to the Precambrian geology and how that plate tectonics differs from today's.
