Additional Information

For more than a century, the spectacular mountain range known as the Tetons has beckoned hikers, climbers, and the simply curious. In this second edition of a classic work, the processes that created this astonishing landscape are clearly described and richly illustrated.

Using their 140 years combined experience, three geologists unlock the secrets of a land sculpted by fire, ice, and shifting tectonic plates. Their work is also a story of a revolution in scientific thinking, and the ways that revolution has revealed even more of the story's details.

Accompanied by more than one hundred photographs and illustrations, the text is highly readable and scientifically accurate. It rewards the reader with the perspectives and discoveries of three geologists whose professional and personal lives are deeply intertwined with Jackson Hole and the Teton Range.

I have to agree with the previous reviewer. Creation of the Teton Landscape by David Love is a wonderful book in terms of illustrations and describing the massive earth forces that have produced the Grand Teton Range and Jackson Hole. There is a good description and illustrations of the plate movements and erosion that have created one of the best mountain vistas in the United States.

The book goes on and becomes very thorough in its description of geology and plate techtonics in shaping the earth. Probably too technical for the average reader interested in just learning more about how the Tetons were formed. If you're interested in geology, however, this is a pretty good tome.
I loved all the maps and charts because geology is hard to understand without them. Great preparation for my trip to Wyoming this summer!
This review is book nitty-gritty about the "rewritten and revised" 2nd Edition of 2003 from the Grand Teton Natural History Association.

A handsome, comprehensive book, readable and browse-able. Trade paperback, 135 pp on heavy paper. Color illustrations throughout: maps, photographs, annotated photographs, charts, tables, elevations, and a couple of period images.

Detachable color map attached to the back.

Introduction explaining how this new edition, expands on the earlier versions: "For those hiking, climbing, or simply gazing towards the mountains, a greater understanding of the Tetons' geologic origins and development will enhance their appreciation of the magnificent scenery."
