Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The tale of the Northwest's geology began more than two billion years ago when an ancient continent split, creating oceanfront property in what is now western Idaho. Pacific islands mashed into that coastline, making large parts of Washington and Oregon. These events were followed by monstrous volcanic eruptions, catastrophic ice age floods, and mountains rising to an accompaniment of earthquakes. (Includes California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming and southernmost British Columbia.)

Review:

"This book is worth having...(it) provides answers for anyone who has wondered why the beautiful, diverse place we live looks the way it does." Jeff Baker, Oregonian

Synopsis:

Northwest Exposures chronicles the events that shaped the region's rock and landforms through the ages.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 415-428) and index.

Excellent, excellent book. Explains the geological history of the northwest clearly - somewhat technical, but not too much for an amateur geologist. Highly recommended.
