This detailed interpretive guide explains the forces that created Utah's unforgettable scenery, while providing road logs of highways and major backroads through the Grand Staircase of the Colorado Plateau. Where in Utah can you find a fossilized ant hill that is at least fifty million years old? Do you know the location of an ancient beach that disappeared along with the dinosaurs that strolled it?

So much information about the geology of the area I love to spend time in. This was recommended by another geologist which says a lot about its accuracy.

Does a fair job on the basics, but too much east-coast liberal attitude. The bad cattle, bad dams, people building houses.

Another case of lock up the west and keep it a playground for the coasts.

I bought this book and another one written by the same author. The title of the other book is :Geological Evolution of the Colorado Plateau of Eastern Utah and Western Colorado [Paperback].

The latter was published in 2010 and its content is thoroughly revised from the earlier version. So if you'd like to get a clear picture on the geological evolution of the area, buy the new version.

Being a Geology major learning under Professor Fillmore, his book helped me many times in my research. Not only does he do a great job describing the geology of southern Utah, but his enthusiasm for the area shines through in his writing. Fillmore also has a knack describing very technical processes in ways which anyone can understand.
The first chapter in his book consists of basic principles of geology. This covers most of the forces behind the deposition of the various formations in Utah. These include the geologic rock cycle, basic igneous and sedimentary classifications, rock deformation, monoclines/anticlines/synclines, and the geologic time scale.
The second part consists of a chronological description of the geology of southern Utah, starting from the Pennsylvanian (about 12,500 million years ago) and running all the way to the Quaternary (present). This is the part which comes in really useful for research, because not only does Fillmore write in very easy to understand language, but he also cites all of his sources, mostly from scientific papers, in an easy to look up GSA format.
The third part comes in handy for the tourist and fossil hounds out there! Once you are familiar with the geology of Southern Utah, Fillmore takes you through a mile-by-mile tour, pointing out various rock outcrops and explaining what caused them to form. This is a wealth of knowledge which can make any drive through southern utah an educational experience for the whole family.
This book is a must have for anyone wanting to know about the geology of southern Utah. The material within is very well researched by a college professor of geology, who has a love for the area he is writing about.

Fascinating and authoritative. And small enough that you can lug it around in a pack or keep it in the glove compartment.

Lots of illustrations, informative and beautiful pictures. Lots of coverage: Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, Escalante, and (of course) Zion National Park. My favorite aspect of this book is that you can use it on the road because it has mile-by-mile descriptions.

We toured the "red rock" parks of southern and western Utah this summer. I needed and wanted to understand how these layered and wonderfully colored rocks came to be in the formations that I knew we would soon see. It was very helpful and understandable, but hard slogging for a beginner in geology. I was grateful that I read it before we actually saw the landscape. The parks and landscapes were jaw-dropping awesome, and made more so because I had an inkling of how they had come to be over such a long time.
