Stanley's textbook has been greatly updated, and now is called:

Stanley, S.M.  1999.  Earth System History.  W.H. Freeman and Co.  615 pp.
It comes with an interactive CD-Rom, which has as one of its animations the
development of a Western Interior transgression-regression event.

However, none of the editions of Stanley actual have good *sequence*
stratigraphy for the Western Interior seaway.  I know there was a volume
(from the Geological Survey of Canada) a few years back with a LOT of papers
on the geology & paleo of the Western Interior Seaway (including papers by
Bakker and by Dale Russell): I don't have that volume, but could look it up.
