Finding Fault in California
Code: 0-87842-495-4
Price: $18.00
Quantity in Basket: none
Finding Fault in California by Susan Elizabeth Hough

California has plenty of faults—seismic faults that is. They shear the Golden State into ribbons and have largely crafted California's geologically diverse and dynamic landscape. With humor and ease, Finding Fault in California leads the earthquake curious to the state's most accessible, active, and earth-shaping faults and tells the stories behind the major temblors that have shaken the region.

The book begins with a discussion about what faults are and how to recognize them. The geologic tours follow, exploring the seismic hazards of the Los Angeles Basin, the San Francisco Bay Area, central California, the Mojave Desert, a neighborhood that is slowly being wrenched in two by the creeping Calaveras fault, and a now-landscaped surface rupture from the 1971 San Fernando quake in a McDonald's parking lot—giving new meaning to an order for burgers and shakes.

Photos, maps, and diagrams, most with precise GPS coordinates illustrate the conversational text. Entertaining sidebars highlight the often ingenious methods of modern fault-finding researchers.

Sacramento Impressions
Author: Myers, Tom
ISBN: 9781560374640
Cover: Paperback
Copyright: 09/01/2007
Sacramento Impressions is a vivid portrayal by photographers Tom, Sally, and Jeff Myers of California's capital city, Sacramento, also known as the "City of Trees". Featuring an informative foreword by Sacramento's mayor, the Honorable Heather Fargo, as well as informative captions, this collection highlights the dynamic city in the heart of California. Longtime residents, the Myers capture Sacramento in all of its many moods: from the brilliantly-colored fireworks at the Capitol to the silhouetted fishermen quietly fishing along the American River Parkway from the stately, checkerboard fields of rice in the Sacramento Valley to the horse-drawn stagecoaches during Gold Rush Days in Old Sacramento. The Myers' images capture the sights and colors of the vibrant place once known as New Helvetica: from the bright masts of catamarans at the Folsom Lake Regatta to gold autumn leaves blanketing William Land Park.
