California rocks!; a guide to geologic sites in the Golden State.

Baylor, Katherine J.

Mountain Press


114 pages




A geologist and geographer, Baylor is well suited for the role of guide to California's geologic wonders. Whether describing sites little known outside the state, such as Panum Crater and the Black Diamond Mine, or world-famous locales like Death Valley and Yosemite, the author gives clear explanations of the geologic processes at work underfoot and on view at 65 different locations. Generously illustrated with maps and photographs, this book is an excellent resource for geologic travelers in the Golden State.
