Written by a professional geologist who has spent countless hours in the field exploring and photographing the state, In Search of Ancient Oregon is a book for all those interested in Oregon's present and past landscapes, plants, animals, and climates. It presents fine-art-quality color photographs of well-known features, including Mount Hood, Crater Lake, Smith Rock, Steens Mountain, the Columbia River Gorge, and Oregon's rugged coast, as well as scenic and more remote places, including Diamond Craters, the Owyhees, Abert Rim, Hells Canyon, the Wallowas, and Three Fingered Jack. Clear writing accompanies the more than 215 photographs. Finally, here is a book that tells the tale of how Oregon's diverse landscapes, climates, and wildlife evolved - and what we may expect in the future." "Until now, no book has presented this dynamic story in a way that everyone interested in Oregon's natural history can easily understand. Extraordinary photographs and the author's explanations make this book unique and essential for those curious about our own contemporary landscape."--Jacket."
