Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A wondrous collection of soaring cliffs, deep coulees, basalt dike wals, water-filled potholes, flood-carved caves, and broad channels of one-time rivers spreads across the landscape of eastern and central Washington and northern Oregon. This road and trail guidebook introduces readers, residents, hikers, and tourists to outstanding geological features found in the Columbia River Basin and offers an in-depth look at the geological events and forces that created its vast and varied landscapes. Written in non-technical terms so it is very understandable, the authors describe not only the geology of the region, but the history and recreational opportunities offered at various sites. Ninety-five black and white photographs and 80 maps and illustrations accompany the text and serve as detailed guides to sites throughout the region.

Book News Annotation:

Fifty-three trips are targeted to assist readers in finding and understanding the area's major geologic features. Among the regions covered are: Missoula, Montana and the lower Clark Fork drainage; Grande Ronde and Joseph Creek Canyons on the borders of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho; the Columbia River Gorge; and the northern Oregon Coast. Includes b&w photos and maps.
