A Rock Grows Up: The Pacific Northwest Up Close and Personalby Randi Goodrich
Synopses & Reviews
This book offers more scientific information per page than many textbooks contain in an entire chapter. A Rock Grows Up is not only easy to follow, but a story that you will read again and again.
"Engaging and unique! Reveals the origins of our scenic Northwest with humor and humanness." John Eliot Allen, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Geology at Portland State University
"This story weaves science and art together in a delightful journey through the Pacific Northwest." Christie Ford, M.Ed., Oregon Elementary Science Teacher of the Year
"By creating an enchanting cast of characters, the authors have discovered a wonderful medium to tell the earth's complex geologic story. This integration of narrative and illustration provides easy access to a host of difficult Geoscience concepts." Larry Hanson, Ph.D., Chair, Science Department, Marylhurst College
Barry Basalt leaves no stone unturned when he journeys from the Juan de Fuca Ridge off the Oregon-Washington coast to the Cascades of Washington and Oregon. Along the way, volcanoes erupt, earthquakes rumble and mountains crumble. Through Barry's adventuring spirit and timeless wisdom we learn the newest theories concerning the geologic development of the Pacific Northwest.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 42-43) and index.
