Seriously lacking detailed maps, geologicals and/or cross-sectionals, topographic or satellite, anything useful in color. If I hadn't already known the area, I wouldn't be very interested in re-visiting. For a lover of southwestern US geology, that's sad.

I know it's not a "Roadside Geology of..." but Southern Utah deserves more than this very light work.

This is the first time I've regretted a purchase from Mountain Press Publishing. Ever. The "Roadside Geology" series suffers only from a few states' having dated entries, but they're useful nonetheless. I'd be more cautious with the "Geology Underfoot..." set.

The Geology Underfoot series is a good concept - a handy summary of the geology of a small region. While Geology Underfoot in Northern Arizona (Lon Abbott and Terri Cook) is a fine book, and one I recommend to my classes, the Southern Utah volume is a big disappointment. The authors do not have the credentials that Abbott has, and as a result, the book is superficial at best, misleading in parts at worst. Surely the series could have found some better qualified authors for this book. Orndorff seems qualified, but it really doesn't come across in the book. Wieder's main claim to fame seems to be as a wandering minstrel. The photography (Futey) is good.

Knowing what to look for and being able to identify what you see makes a trip to the fascinating rocks more meaningful. Yes, they are beautiful but a book that tells you how, when, why is a great companion. No more quessing. Here are the facts as geologists know them. Take this book along.
