In The Geologic Story of Yosemite Valley, the geologist Dr. N. King Huber introduces readers to the great natural wonders of Yosemite Valley. Huber describes Yosemite’s famous waterfalls, sheer rock walls, and hanging valleys as they appear today. Then, he explains how these features were created through the powerful forces of magma, uplift, erosion, and glaciers. Readers will gain a greater understanding of Yosemite Valley’s ancient past and the geological changes taking place today. Illustrations of the geological process and photos of Yosemite make this short book an excellent introduction to Yosemite Valley.
