Abstract

In Annals of the Former World, John McPhee chronicles the geological history of the landform "North America," connecting written histories with the earth's autobiography as written in rock. By incorporating the journal of Ethel Waxham, who traveled West to teach school in 1905, into these sweeping geological annals, McPhee presents life writing as a narrative and figural corollary to earth processes.
