Publisher's Summary

In an easy conversational style, The Restless Northwest provides a brief overview of the remarkable geological processes that have shaped the Pacific Northwest. The narrative is also sprinkled with firsthand accounts of the people involved in recent exciting, scientific discoveries. Williams enlivens this story of long-ago geologic events, with a variety of fascinating asides, on everything from enormous undersea tubeworms, to the Willamette meteorite.

Deeply Educational yet Lightly Entertaining

The wonderful, beautiful Northwest of the US is so rich with geological answers, discoveries, and understanding tectonics and volcanoes. As a East Coaster, I had no idea. The Northwest seemed so quiet...

Mesmerized by the narration of James Killavey, I was searching for other books narrated by him and came across this Non Fiction Science book.

It was written to easily explain the technology and vocabulary. I loved it. It found a way to present the facts combining educational and entertaining.

Highly recommended for those who seek an occasional non fiction or historical listen once in a while. It’s deep, yet light and fluffy.
