9780878423231: Northwest Exposures: A Geologic Story of the Northwest

The tale of the Northwest's geology began more than two billion years ago when an ancient continent split, creating oceanfront property in what is now western Idaho. Pacific islands mashed into that coastline, making large parts of Washington and Oregon. These events were followed by monstrous volcanic eruptions, catastrophic ice age floods, and mountains rising to an accompaniment of earthquakes.

About the Author:

David Alt was a geology professor at the University of Montana in Missoula. Dedicated to bringing geology to the general public, he cofounded the popular Roadside Geology series. He wrote a number of books in the series with coauthor Donald Hyndman, and helps edit others. Dave Alt passed away in 2015, but his love of geology and wry humor lives on in the many books he authored.

Review:

"This book is worth having . . . [it] provides answers for anyone who has wondered why the beautiful, diverse place we live in looks the way it does" --Jeff Baker, Oregonian
