In Geology of Iowa: Over Two Billion Years of Change, author Wayne I. Anderson presents a chronological account of the rock formations that underlie the farmland and cities of Iowa. Recently published by the Iowa State University Press, Geology of Iowa begins with a description of the geologic setting of the state in the Stable Interior; a region of generally flat-lying sedimentary rocks that show little deformation. Anderson comments, "At any one location in Iowa, the rocks typically appear to be horizontal - as flat as a pancake."
