Living with Thunder: Exploring the Geologic Past, Present, and Future of the Pacific Northwest
Ellen Morris Bishop $24.95 paperback
Like the Oregon: 150 Years of Statehood; 150 Million Years in the Making exhibition, to which the author was a contributor, Living with Thunder introduces the general reader and geological non-specialist to the amazing history of the Pacific Northwest's geology. This lively and engaging account of the volcanoes, faults, water, and ice that have shaped the land is augmented with stunning color photographs, maps, and time charts. Bishop also examines the confluence between scientific findings and Native American documentation of several major geologic events; the title of her book harks to the Klamath Indian recounting of Mount Mazama's cataclysmic eruption.
