“Geology Underfoot in Western Washington” is a get-out-of-the-car-and-put-your-hands-on-the-rock sort of guide book. The author, Dave Tucker of Bellingham, wrote the book for folks without academic background in geology, though geologists enjoy it and teachers use it. It is packed with introductory color photographs and many descriptive diagrams. There are 22 field trips to places in the Cascades, Puget Lowlands, Olympic Mountains and the Pacific shore. Readers are introduced to some geologic essentials, such as plate tectonics, how rocks are named and dated, and a capsule geologic history of Washington State. Each chapter was reviewed by a geologist who has worked at the site. The presentation will highlight one of the field trips, and explain how the book was put together.
Books will be for sale ($24; cash or check) as well as a 20×28 inch poster of the book’s cover ($20); the cover depicts a possible future eruption of Mount Rainier and its effects on the lowlands.
