Geology of Utah's Rivers (Paperback)William Parry (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
Parry approaches his subject from many angles-the mountain building events that provide a source for the rivers, the physiographic provinces that give the modern rivers their character, and the deposits of sand and gravel that formed as ancient rivers flowed. Fossil and modern fish fauna are described to provide a unique guide to some aspects of rivers not available by any other method. The description of rivers is completed with the 'historical' account of rivers that did not exist-the mythical rivers of Utah.
Transcending the notion of a traditional geology text, Parry provides detailed commentary on historical exploration and the development of the local scenery. His ambitious scholarship offers a fresh look at Utah's changing landscape throughout geologic time.
