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.
