About the Author
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.

The short "vignettes" (chapters) are bite-sized for easy reading and bite-sized for easy excursions. I'm familiar with most of the places described in this book and it is fun to learn more of the geologic background of those places. I plan to take the book with me on future trips to Yosemite and make the little field trips described in the vignettes.
I would recommend this to frequent visitors to Yosemite and to anyone who wants more understanding of the Geology than you get at the Visitors Center.
