        We used an excellent textbook in my historical geology class called
The Earth Through Time (6th Edition) by Harold Levin that details
everything from the Devonian paleogeography of the North American craton to
the present.  (1999, Saunders College Publishing.  Library of Congress
catalog card #98-84385.)

        A good source is the Geological Society of America in Boulder,
Colorado.  Here are a couple of papers available from them:

Bally, W., and A.R. Palmer (eds.) 1989:  "The geology of North America; an
overview."  Decade of North American Geology, vol. A.

Salvador, A. 1991:  Geology of North America.

        Hope these help.  --TAC
