How to order or download the Mount Rainier area roadside geology book



The comments:

I just finished perusing the Roadside Geology of Mount Rainier National Park and Vicinity. What a masterpiece! The breadth and style of coverage, the rich illustrations, the overview sections, and the detailed road logs; all combine to make this one of the nicest publications I have seen. Congratulations!

[I] …began paging through your gorgeous Roadside Geology of Mount Rainier area. What a magnificent publication! …You have brought together almost unlimited information. It is an invaluable reference for me, and I am sure, for others. The photographs are terrific, showing excellent examples described in the text. And the maps are gorgeous, the colors most attractive. Every thing about the publication is first class. A most hearty congratulation, a job well done.

Just received a copy of the new opus. Just thumbed through it and read a few things here and there. Looks very well organized and surprisingly complete. Looking forward to reading the entire publication...This is a major addition to the book world!

I have my eye on some of your wonderful illustrations to use in talks, etc. If I were still teaching I would definitely use some in classroom situations.

I and I'm sure the rest of the geologic community thank you for making a very important compilation as well as your own contributions to our knowledge of Mt. Rainier and the Pacific Northwest.

I just ordered your *fabulous* Roadside Geology of Mount Rainier. WOW!
The maps, diagrams, photos, etc. are all TERRIFIC!
I downloaded a copy too. I will encourage my summer teachers next year to think about Mount Rainier and its resources for teaching. Your book fits in well with David Biek's two books on the plants and trees of Mount Rainier National Park. It is like the whole picture is complete.
Your book is a wonderful resource - so detailed.

I just ordered your book, and it came a couple days ago.  What a great job!  A tremendous amount of work and information and the guides look wonderful. Can't wait to hit the trails with it in hand.  You provided a great service to the world of geology.  Many thanks for your long labors.

Information Circular 107 … is beautiful, and loaded with information. I look forward to taking it with me whenever I am traveling to the mountain.
