Texte du rabat

This is a beautifully illustrated general-interest book on the most famous fault on Earth. The San Andreas Fault, site of the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 and many others, is the boundary between two of the earth's crustal plates, and it is a major architect of California's diverse landscapes.

Résumé
This text provides a geologic tour of the San Andreas Fault, with colour illustrations, anecdotes, and authoritative information about earthquakes. It discusses the evolution of seismology as a science and traces the knowledge that scientists have gleaned about earthquakes and plate tetonics.
