This best-selling book with loads of great photographs discusses the geology of the low-lying eastern plains to the central Rocky Mountains that soar to over 14,000 feet. It chronicles the story of Colorado’s 2.7 billion years of rocks, climate, life, and structural evolution. Written for a general audience interested in learning more about scenic Colorado and its geology, it also includes a discussion of landforms and geologic hazards. Lavishly illustrated with numerous photographs of many interesting Colorado geological sites, it will engage both geologists and non-geologists alike. SP-52
