These might qualify for your geology category:

Annals of the Former World - John McPhee
The Seashell on the Mountaintop - Alan Cutler
Remarkable Creatures - Tracy Chevalier
Thanks for your suggestions. I have added The Seashell on the Mountaintop to my wishlist and Annals of the Former World might be a possibility (I hate to say it but it might be a bit long to keep my interest).

I read The Fossil Hunter by Shelley Emling last year. It was about Mary Anning (and Elizabeth Philpott). I selected it over Remarkable Creatures when looking for a book about Anning. I was a little disappointed with The Fossil Hunter, it is possible I would like Remarkable Creatures more.
