About the Author

Allen Glazner is the Kenan Distinguished Professor of Geological Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A native Californian, he holds a PhD from the University of California at Los Angeles and has done research in the Sierra Nevada and Mojave Desert since his undergraduate days at Pomona College.
Greg Stock was born and raised in the Sierra Nevada just north of Yosemite, and he has explored the region by climbing on and caving in the region s unique geology. These interests led him to pursue a bachelor s degree in geology at Humboldt State University and a PhD in earth science at the University of California at Santa Cruz, where he studied the uplift and erosion of the Sierra Nevada. Greg is presently Yosemite National Park s first-ever park geologist. He lives in Yosemite Valley with his wife, Sarah, and daughter, Autumn.

I had only been to Yosemite once in my life before I read this book but I found it to be a totally understandable description of the geology of the park and adjacent areas. There are beautiful color photos, diagrams,charts, and maps. The authors are both academics, but Greg Stock is a native of the area, and has a great enthusiasm for his subject, and communicates in terms that are easy to follow without being simplistic. He describes the geological puzzles of the area and the logic used to come up with satisfactory explanations for the features you see. Recommended for anyone who has been there, or is planning to go.

Geology Underfoot in Yosemite National Park offers California collections a fine geology-based survey of natural wonders and sites in Yosemite Park. Over twenty-five sites are covered in a fine blend of colorful photos and illustrations and keys to understanding how geologists view the environment. History and geology blend in a fine addition to any California collection!

Fascinating read....Since I live near by, the book has prompted me to take some day trips to a couple of places near the park that I didn't know exist...

I have visited several of the sites described in the book. The directions are clear and accurate. The explanation of the geologic events is understandable and relates well to what you see in the field. Most important the sites selected each have very interesting stories to tell
