Geology Underfoot in Yellowstone Country (Geology Underfoot)


Geology Underfoot in Yellowstone Country (Geology Underfoot) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although it's also known for for wolves, bison, and stunning scenery, Yellowstone National Park was established as the world's first national park in 1872 largely because of its geological wonders. In Geology Underfoot in Yellowstone Country, author and geologist Marc Hendrix takes you to over twenty sites in the park and surrounding region that illustrate the deep-time story of Yellowstone Country, from its early existence as a seafloor hundreds of millions of years ago to an earthquake swarm in 2008 that caused some folks to wonder if the Yellowstone Volcano was going to blow its top again.

Book News Annotation:

Through a series of twenty individual vignettes, Hendrix (geology, U. of Montana) provides readers with an overview of many of the fascinating geological feature of the Yellowstone National Park area. Each chapter features color maps and illustrations and provides a“mini-lectu” on the unique geological forces and features of the site as well as direction for reaching each location. Besides the world famous geyser Old-Faithful, the work covers both well traveled and more remote sites including fossilized forests, hot springs, glacial deposits and calderas.
