Washington is alive with geologic activity: It's home to the most active volcanoes in the lower 48, earthquakes regularly rattle the populated Puget Sound region, the potential of landslides increases with each soaking rain, and tsunami evacuation routes alert tourists in Olympic National Park to the active plate boundary just off the coast. The only geologic hazard Washingtonians need not fear, at least not with the continued trend of global warming, is another Ice Age flood. More than forty of the biggest floods known in the history of Earth scoured the Channeled Scabland of eastern Washington, the most recent only about 15,000 years ago. Since the first edition of Roadside Geology of Washington appeared on the book shelves in 1984, several generations of geologists have studied the wild assortment of rocks in the Evergreen State, from 45-million-year-old sandstone exposed in sea cliffs at Cape Flattery to 1.4-billion-year-old sandstone near Spokane. In between are the rugged granitic and metamorphic peaks of the North Cascades, the volcanic flows of Mt. Rainier and the other active volcanoes of the Cascade magmatic arc, and the 2-mile-thick flood basalts of the Columbia Basin. With the help of this brand new, completely updated second edition, you can appreciate spectacular geologic features along more than forty of Washington's highways.

From the sandstone ridges and shale and limestone valleys of western Maryland to the sand dunes and tidal estuaries on Delaware's coast, Roadside Geology of Maryland, Delaware, and Washington, D.C, steers you to the some of the best geologic features found inside and outside the Beltway. Thirty-five road guides discuss the landforms and rocks visible from a car window, along bike paths, and at nearby waysides and parks, including Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historic Park, Assateague Island National Seashore, Rock Creek Park, and Cape Henlopen State Park. With this book as your guide, find out how the sixth largest impact crater on earth helped shape Chesapeake Bay; discover what moved the rocks at Devils Racecourse in Catoctin Mountain Park; and learn how early settlers put the geology to work, locating major ports where deep tidal rivers issued from mill-friendly, rocky streams.

Nature awaits discovery at almost every turn in the complex ecosystem of Washington, D.C. In parks large and small, within the District's gardens, and on public streets, there is tremendous biodiversity. In Field Guide to the Natural World of Washington, D.C., naturalist Howard Youth takes us on an urban safari, describing the wild side of the nation's capital. Beyond the abundant wildlife that can be seen in every neighborhood, Washington boasts a large park network rich in natural wonders. A hike along the trails of Rock Creek Park, one of the country’s largest and oldest urban forests, quickly reveals white-tailed deer, eastern gray squirrels, and little brown bats. Mayapples, Virginia bluebells, and red mulberry trees are but a few of the treasures found growing at the National Arboretum. A stroll along the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers might reveal stealthy denizens such as bullfrogs, largemouth bass, and common snapping turtles. Detailed drawings by Carnegie artist Mark A. Klingler and photography by Robert E. Mumford, Jr., reveal the rich color and stunning beauty of the flora and fauna awaiting every D.C. naturalist. Whether seeking a secluded jog or an adventurous outing, residents and tourists alike will find this handsome guide indispensable for finding oases away from the noise of the city.

Gemälde als Flucht aus der kalten Realität - »Palast der Erinnerungen« von Debra Dean Die junge Marina ist Museumsführerin in der berühmten Leningrader Eremitage. Früher umgaben sie faszinierende Gemälde und die tiefe Zuneigung des Mannes, den sie liebt. Nun aber, im Winter 1941, ist sie allein und die Museumssäle sind leer. In der Stadt herrschen Hunger, Not und Verzweiflung. Doch Marina hat ihren eigenen Weg gefunden, das Elend zu ertragen: Sie geht von Saal zu Saal und erinnert sich der Meisterwerke, die vor dem Krieg dort hingen. Sie sieht anmutige Gesten, betörende Farben, die Strahlkraft des Lichts. So entsteht in Marina das ganze Museum zu neuem Leben. Vor allem die Erinnerung an die Madonnenbilder und ihre Schönheit lassen sie alles überleben. Jahrzehnte später sind es wieder die Madonnenbilder, die ihr Trost spenden. Marina, deren Gedächtnis sie immer häufiger im Stich lässt, flüchtet sich erneut zu den Bildern und erlebt noch einmal Geborgenheit und Glück. »Was für ein tröstlicher Gedanke, den Debra Dean ihrem Romandebüt »Palast der Erinnerungen« zugrunde gelegt hat: Es ist die Schönheit der Kunst, die jede Finsternis erhellt. Nach der Lektüre dieses Buches glaubt man fest daran.« - Brigitte Begeisterte Leserstimmen: »Ein Buch über Liebe, Schönheit und über die Kraft der Imagination. Volle Punktzahl(...).« »Hier ist alles vereint, was einem Roman Spannung, Dynamik und die nötige Dramatik verleiht.« »Liebevoll, romantisch, anrührend und realistisch...«

Ride along with geologists Pamela Gore and Bill Witherspoon on this extraordinary tour of the Peach State's varied terrain. In 35 detailed and densely illustrated road guides, the authors examine Georgia's fascinating geology and reveal the stories that lie beneath the surface. You'll be amazed at Georgia's geological diversity, from its shifting barrier islands along the coast to the sandstone ridges in its northwest corner. At the Cumberland Island National Seashore you'll find the ruins of Dungeness, the once-magnificent Carnegie estate built of local mineral resources, and encounter wild horses grazing among windswept dunes. In Atlanta, the white whaleback of granite called Stone Mountain will impress you with its protruding cat's eye minerals and stony layers that are sloughing off like the layers of an onion. In the Blue Ridge Mountains you can witness Amicalola Falls, one of the highest cascading waterfalls east of the Mississippi River, and Tallulah Gorge, one the deepest gorges in the eastern United States. And in the iconic Okefenokee Swamp of south Georgia, you'll wade through the gator-filled blackwater of one of the largest wetlands in North America. With its engaging prose and 250-plus color photos, maps, and figures, Roadside Geology of Georgia takes you beyond the rocks to unearth the billion-year history of the Empire State of the South.
