Geology and Our National Parks
This is a wonderful way to study some of the amazing parks and monuments of the US National Park system.
Each park or monument represents a different area of geological study, so while you get a grand overview of these parks, you also get a study of one particular area of geology with each location. And it is all done from a Young Earth, Global Flood perspective.
This book covers 29 United States national parks and monuments, including:
- Yellowstone National Park (our restless earth)
- Petrified Forest National Park, Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument, John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, Fossil Butte National Monument, Badlands National Monument ( fossils, preservation, and petrification)

- Glacier National Park (Global warming and climate change: is there a difference?)
- Grand Canyon National Park (deposition and transportation, the power of water)
- North Cascades National Park (rock types and what has been observed)
