"Written in a lucid style that is easily understood by anyone with even a smattering of interest in geology, this book is illustrated by scores of helpful photographs and maps. It is a dandy companion for any glovebox." --Lee Dye, Westways

Reading the rocks like pages in a book, Geology Underfoot in Southern California offers an inside view of the southland's active and sometimes enigmatic landscape. Twenty vignettes each weave a geologic story of a particular scene, relationship, or feature. Some spotlight well-known landmarks, while others describe subtle relationships among the earth's awesome forces. Together these snapshots introduce readers to southern California's rich, dynamic, and even flamboyant geology.
