Bretz's Flood: The Remarkable Story of a Rebel Geo
Category: Science: Geology
Author: John Soennichsen
Copyright/published Year: 2009 by Sasquatch Books
Description: Conventional geologic thinking always said that the landscape
between Idaho and the Cascade Mountains - a unique place
characterized by gullies, coulees, and deserts - was created over
millions of years by rivers that had long since gone dry. Science
professor J Harlen Bretz (who made up his own name and
intentionally didn't use a period after J), thought otherwise.
Based on extensive research and keen observation, he believed
this area had been scoured in a virtual instant by a massive
flood. Because Bretz was a gadfly in the scientific community and
his idea sounded like an attempt to prove the biblical flood, he
was personally and professionally attacked and humiliated.
Undaunted, he applied all of his skills to proving his thesis,
but he would have to wait for confirmation until satellite
photography became widespread years after his retirement.
Bretz's Flood tells an exciting story of an epic mystery
of the western landscape, how it came to be solved, and the
fascinating scientist who did it.
This book is new.
