I am ashamed to admit that I found this book while working on a school project, but I am obliged to say that this is one of the most comprehensive, well-written, and ultimately informative piece on the material I have come across in the 4 months I have been working on this project I highly recommend it for anyone even remotely interested in the geology of the Puget sound area, and destinations worth a second look.
