"Western Washington is a dynamic geologic environment with rich, complex, and diverse geology. With active volcanoes, sediment-laden rivers, glaciers, wave-washed beaches, ancient and active faults, and a wide variety of rock types, it is a great place to experience the story of the Earth's ongoing evolution."-Dave Tucker from the preface to Geology Underfoot in Western Washington

From the crest of the Cascades to the Pacific, and from the Columbia River north to the Canadian border, the ghosts of deep time are widely exposed in western Washington. The book's 22 chapters, or vignette, lead you to easily accessible stops along Washington's highways-and some trails, too. A healthy dose of full-color illustrations and photos compliments the author's illuminating prose, further demystifying Washington's geologic wonders. With this book in hand, you'll soon feel like an Evergreen State geology expert.


David Tucker lives in Bellingham, Washington. He has a master's degree in geology and is a research associate in the geology department at Western Washington University. He is also a director of the Mount Baker Volcano Research Center, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that raises funds to support research at the active volcano and educate the public about the mountain's volcanic. Tucker has been mapping Baker's geology since the mid-1990s, in particular the distribution of volcanic ash deposits. He leads public field trips and gives presentations about the geology of northwest Washington, and he is the author of a popular blog, Northwest Geology Field Trips (http://nwgeology.wordpress.com/).
