San Francisco and the Bay Area
by Ted Konigsmark
Written for the non-geologist, this user-friendly book leads readers on fascinating field trips to Bay Area landmarks: Fort Point, Alcatraz, the Cliff House, Sutro Baths, Twin Peaks, Fort Funston, Ocean Beach, Devils Slide, Skyline Drive, Angel Island, the Marin Headlands of Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and Point Reyes Peninsula. Visits to the San Andreas and Hayward Faults show what earthquakes have caused.
Introductory sections provide a concise course in geology, including geologic thinking, plate tectonics, Bay Area rocks, and California faults and earthquakes.
