Glacial Lake Missoula and Its Humongous Floods tells the tale of a huge Ice Age lake that, when it suddenly drained, unleashed more than ten times the combined flow of all the modern rivers of the world. The book follows the path of the floodwaters as they raged from western Montana across the Idaho Panhandle, then scoured eastern Washington and rushed down the Columbia Gorge to the Pacific Ocean.

How can you pass up a book with the word "humongous" in the title! And it's a pretty interesting read on top of that for those who are interested in geology and the West. Read full review

Alls well that ends...with a new book!
