Summary

Summary

This book is the only one of its kind that focuses solely on the geologic history of the Pacific Northwest, and for that reason it could be used on any number of classes dealing with that subject. Included would be classes on geology or Oregon, Washington, Idaho, or the Pacific Northwest in general. The book focuses on plate tectonics, which underlies the geology of this entire region and which is the most recent development in geology.
