Until about 200 million years ago, the western margin of North America lay to the east, along the present Idaho border, and a broad coastal plain spread westward into Oregon. The rest of the state was ocean floor. Then the continent began moving slowly westward away from Europe and the floor of the Pacific Ocean began sliding beneath the western edge. That is what created Oregon, and this book tells how it happened.

    Glacial Lake Missoula and Its Humongous Floods tells the tale of a huge Ice Age Lake that, when it suddenly drained, unleashed more then ten times the combined flow of all the modern rivers of the world.

  • Roadside Geology of Washington

    The geology of Washington is a story of islands-- micro-continents-- coming in from the sea. Two hundred million years ago most of Washington consisted of two large islands, each one a scrap of continent, lying somewhere in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean. One after the other they docked onto the North American continent, each adding its distinctive bit to the complex geologic and geographic mosaic of western North America.

  • Roadside Geology of New Mexico

    The Land of Enchantment, New Mexico is as varied in its scenery as its nickname suggests. With desert lowlands in the south and high, hoary peaks in the north, with rugged volcanic uplands and colorful plateaus, with high plains along its eastern border, and with a great rift valley that quite literally slashes the state in two, New Mexico presents many faces to its residents and visitors--faces that can largely be laid at the doorstep of the state's varied geology.
