About the Book
This book, “Badlands” by Tom Carroll, is a photographic tour through the Badlands National Park that is a land of sharp ridges, steep walled canyons, gullies, pyramids and knobs that has been so ruthlessly ravaged by wind and water that it is now hugely picturesque. The Badlands are a wonderland of bizarre, colorful spires and pinnacles, massive buttes and deep gorges. Erosion of the Badlands reveals sedimentary layers of different colors: purple and yellow (shale), tan and gray (sand and gravel), red and orange (iron oxides) and white (volcanic ash). 120 photographs.
