Basin and Range - 81 edition

Basin and Range (ISBN10: 0374516901; ISBN13: 9780374516901)
ISBN13: 978-0374516901
ISBN10: 0374516901

Summary: The first of John McPhee's works in his series on geology and geologists, ''Basin and Range is a book of journeys through ancient terrains, always in juxtaposition with travels in the modern world--a history of vanished landscapes, enhanced by the histories of people who bring them to light. The title refers to the physiographic province of the United States that reaches from eastern Utah to eastern California, a silent world of austere beauty, of hundreds of discrete high mountain r
anges that are green with junipers and often white with snow. The terrain becomes the setting for a lyrical evocation of the science of geology, with important digressions into the plate-tectonics revolution and the history of the geologic time scale.
