Synopsis:

Professional geologists write and edit the "Roadside Geology" books for people who are not geologists but would like to learn something about the rocks and landforms around them. Each book begins with an introductory chapter that briefly reviews the rocks and landscapes of its state. The remaining chapters provide a detailed discussion of state regions and end with a series of road guides.

Twenty-five years after writing the groundbreaking Roadside Geology of Northern California, David Alt and Donald W. Hyndman have written an entirely new book — with expanded coverage, new photos and maps, and the latest interpretations of California's rocks.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 353-359) and index.
