Publisher Comments:

The Uinta Mountains of northeastern Utah are the most prominent east/west range in the continental United States. Through the folding of the earth's crust to flooding by ocean water to glacial erosion, The Geologic Story of the Uinta Mountains tells the fascinating tale of how the range was formed. Noted geologist Wallace Hansen presents his observations, notes, and conclusions about the range's impressive geologic history with a clarity and wit that give this book a unique and popular appeal.

Synopsis:

Other than the Brooks Range in Alaska, the Uintas are the most prominent east/west range in the United States. They also contain the highest mountains in Utah, many of which exceed 13,000 feet, including Kings Peak at 13,528 feet — the highest point in Utah. There are well over 1,000 natural lakes and over 400 miles of streams in this 100-mile long range in northeastern Utah. While the intended scope of this book is fairly broad, the author presents the geologic story of the Uinta Mountains with a clarity and wit that gives this book a unique and popular appeal.

An expert's insights into rock history,back two billion years and including much paleontology,such as trilobites from the Cambrian Period,500 million years ago. Much of this well-illustrated book focuses on the massive Pleistocene glaciations and their carving effects on the mountain range with its 26 peaks over 13,000 feet high. The Uinta Range stretches out 150 miles, west to east,in northeast Utah and, though mainly wilderness, has a lovely,paved scenic road that snakes over in a roughly south to north direction. Ample camping at up to over two miles high is nearby amidst the thousands of lakes formed by the glaciers. This usually uncrowded place encourages thinking and being thoughtful,whether sitting or hiking. Depending on the winter's snowfall the high passes on the road may not open until mid summer.
