Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My background: I am a mining engineer with many courses and practical field work in geology. I purchased this book to aide me in an upcoming trip to Death Valley. I found this book to be very difficult to read and follow. One of my main reasons to get this book was for the road guides. I spent quite some time just trying to figure out the route for the Black Mountains. The reason being is that the trip starts at the intersection of 190 and Badwater Road, ok. But you have to read the preceding page to see you go in a clockwise formation, good now on the start. But when it gets to Dantes Peak and says to drive to I on the map on figure 14 I found that I is off of Badwater Road. That means it takes you on a counter clockwise route. Nope, the I is in the wrong spot on the figure and is NOT off Badwater Road. After figuring that out I was able to follow the route around the Black Mountains. It took me a half hour to just get that far on the route after figuring the figure was wrong.

It does have a lot of really good pictures and the descriptions of what you are looking at is really nice and plane. The figures on the maps are lacking something important-the road names except for the major highways. You will need a good map of the Park to use in conjunction with the book descriptions. The figures should be a whole page to show these important roads.

I am sure that once I get to the park this book will be helpful for what I wanted, good geology. Until then it is a very difficult book to follow. It is worse than many textbooks I have used on geology. One last complaint. It would not have taken any effort to include the ages of the formations on the stratigraphic column on Table 1. Now you need another book to find that out. But in some cases throughout the book it does give ages.
