Mary Hill tells the story of the magnificent Sierra Nevada - the longest highest, and most spectacular mountain range in the contiguous United States. She takes us from the time before the land which would be California even existed., through the days of roaring volcanoes, violent earthquakes, and chilling ice sheets, to the more recent history of the Sierra's early explorers and the generations of adventuresome souls who followed. For thirty years, the first edition of Geology of the Sierra Nevada has been the definitive guide to the Sierra Nevada's geologic history for nature lovers, travelers, hikers, campers, and armchair explorers. This edition offers new chapters and sidebars and incorporates the concept of plate tectonics throughout the text.
