Marshall is one of the middle tier of counties and lies between Tama and Storv counties on the east a nd west u respectively. The Iowa river makes a bold bend southward nearly to the center of the county, where it turns abruptly eastward, cleverly detaching the northeast quarter. As in the case of most of the inland counties of Iowa, Marshall comprises a rectangular area of approximately five hundred and seventy-six (576) square miles and considerably more than a third of a million acres. Considering the great value of the natural resources of Marshall county and the varied and abundant fauna entombed in the rocks, the literature concerning the geology of the region is extremely meager.
