From the plunging depths of the Grand Canyon to jagged volcanic peaks, from Sedona’s vibrant red rocks to the tapered slot of Antelope Canyon, Geology Underfoot in Northern Arizona introduces you to a land of contrasts.
“A rare combination of effective scientific and literary presentation, this one is highly recommended.” —C. Smith
At twenty special sites in this timeless landscape, readers can see and sometimes touch evidence of an ancient supercontinent and colliding volcanic island arcs, mighty mountain ranges and tropical seas, thousand-foot sand dunes, a meteor with deep impact, swimming dilophosaurs, a spring that grows rock, and more.
“Lon Abbott and Terri Cook write knowledgeably and clearly about the geologic paradise that is Northern Arizona.”—Wayne Ranney, Author, Carving Grand Canyon and Sedona Through Time
“If you are planning a trip to the Grand Canyon…buy this book and read it.”—Benjamin Andersen
