On The Trail of the Ice Age Floods – The Northern Reaches – Vol. 2
By Bruce Bjornstad and Eugene Kiver
Keokee Books, 2012; 480 pages; 6” x 9” softcover
Following up on his 2006 book On the Trail of the Ice Age Floods, geologist Bruce Bjornstad joined forces with Emeritus Professor Eugene Kiver to guide readers upstream – The Northern Reaches.
In Volume 2, The Northern Reaches, Bjornstad and Kiver focus on the Channeled Scabland, where the evidence for megafloods is most striking and dramatic. It was in the Channeled Scabland early in the 20th century where rebel geologist J Harlen Bretz first saw most clearly, and described most eloquently, the evidence for these Ice Age cataclysms that so violently transformed the region.
Beginning where the floods originated at the Idaho-Montana border and following them through Washington’s Channeled Scabland, coauthors Bjornstad and Kiver explore dozens of flood features, many found nowhere else on Earth. They present dozens of trails and tours directing readers to experience, firsthand, the striking aftermath of the cataclysmic Ice Age floods.
