The purpose of this booklet is to give the visitor some idea of the geologic history of the area. Special emphasis has been placed on the geologic ideas and theories that help to explain the origin of the rocks and sediments seen in the parks. The report is written in a semi-popular style and is intended to be of use to anyone who desires to increase their knowledge of the geology of southwestern Maine.
Field work upon which this discussion is based was sponsored by the Maine Geological Survey, and I want to thank Walter Anderson, State Geologist, for his continuing interest and support of my work in southern Maine. I thank John Poisson for the cover illustrations and Bennett Wilson for the diagrams contained in the text. I thank Gary Boone, Irwin Novak, Robert Tucker, Carolyn Lepage, John Rand, Donald Newberg, Samuel Butcher, James Moulton, and Lendall Knight for their critical reading of the manuscript. Their helpful suggestions have greatly improved the presentation. I accept all responsibility for any shortcomings.
