The Colorado Plateau - A Geologic History (51)
6" (15 cm) wide x 9" (23 cm) high
by Donald L. Baars
At the convergence of the Four Corners of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona lies the red rock country of the Colorado Plateau whose most famous feature is the Grand Canyon. This comprehensive summary of the geology of the canyonlands is detailed enough to satisfy a geologist looking for an overview of the region, yet clearly enough written to appeal to anyone interested in learning the scientific story behind this magnificent scenic area. The author, a consulting geologist, is also an experienced guide to the Colorado Plateau. He has studied the region for some thirty years and has guided raft trips on the Colorado River and its tributaries. One of these expeditions is described in this book.
