The Colorado Plateau: A Geologic History

Revised and Updated edition

Donald L. Baars

This new edition of Donald L. Baars's classic The Colorado Plateau incorporates new text, maps, photographs, figures, tables, and bibliography to provide the most up-to-date geology of the red rock and canyon country of the Four Corners of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. Baars's comprehensive geological summary of the canyonlands is detailed enough to satisfy a geologist looking for an overview of the region yet clearly enough written to appeal to anyone interested in learning the scientific story behind this magnificent scenic area.


Donald L. Baars retired from the Kansas Geological Survey with forty years' experience as a geologist and guide on the Colorado Plateau, and he is the author of several books on the geology of the area. He resides in Lawrence, Kansas.
