Bones, Rocks, and Stars: the Science of When Things Happened, by Chris Turney
Northwest Exposures: a Geologic Story of the Northwest, by David Alt & Donald Hyndman
Geology Underfoot in Death Valley and Owens Valley, by Robert Sharp & Allen Glazner
Stories in Stone: Travels Through Urban Geology, by David B. Williams
Glad you enjoyed Dyk’s volume! I’m working under him on my undergrad thesis, doing a project on Mesozoic extension in the Great Gulf (just north of Mt. Washington). His bedrock geologic map is awesome! I wish I had it blown up to full poster size. I hope that for the next printing, basalt dikes that I and last year’s thesis students had documented make it onto the map – for the upcoming Pittsburgh GSA conference, I’ll be presenting some of this and Dyk will present a poster on the findings from the past two field seasons with special attention to dikes.
Looking forward to NE GSA in Pittsburgh; see you there!
