I still love Ross Maxwell's book, "Big Bend of the Rio Grande, A Guide to the Rocks, Landscape, Geologic History, and Settlers of the Area of Big Bend National Park." Published by the University of Texas and the Texas Bureau of Economic Geology, 1968. It has a huge geologic map of the park which I still love to carry with me when I am doing long trips. He was not a great writer and I may love it just because he was a good friend. But the map alone is worth the price.
