Overview

Although it's also known for wolves, bison, and stunning scenery, Yellowstone National Park was established as the world's first national park in 1872 largely because of its geological wonders. In Geology Underfoot in Yellowstone Country, author and geologist Marc S. Hendrix takes you to over twenty sites in the park and surrounding region that illustrate the deep-time story of Yellowstone Country, from its early existence as a seafloor hundreds of millions of years ago to volcanic activity that has long characterized the region. With prose tooled for the lay reader and a multitude of colorful photos and illustrations, Geology Underfoot in Yellowstone Country will help you read the landscape the way a geologist does.

As a photographer, I shoot everything. As a geologist wannabee, I needed a book to see what Yellowstone's history is all about. (We live close by in south central Idaho and have hiked and camped many times in the park.) The photos in this book are in color and the text is easy to understand. I was glad to see the author is a professor of geology at the Univ. of Montana in Missoula. My other favorite book is Geology Underfoot in Southern Utah. If you're coming West, you need these books!
