Abstract

In <i>Annals of the Former World</i>, John McPhee chronicles the geological history of the landform "North America," connecting written histories with the earth&apos;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.
