During my recent positions as an Interpretation Park Ranger at Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area, I became very interested in Lake Missoula Ice Age Flood(s) that shaped the landscape of Eastern Washington and the Columbia River Gorge between Oregon and Washington. As a part of my position, we were asked to conduct research into the flood in order that we might explain or interpret the unique geologic features that are so evident in the park.Lake Roosevelt is the lake behind Grand Coulee Dam. The lake now fills the Grand Coulee that was carved out by the massive Glacial Lake Missoula Flood(s)I was impressed by the fact that there are relatively few guides to the features of the flood in Washington. Also what I was seeing seemed to contradict the view of many geologists that there were multiple floods, up to as many as 100. This interpretation also contradicted my view and that of many geologists commonly referred to as creationists. Their view of just one or at most a few floods is also more in keeping with my view as a Christian and belief that God created the heavens and the earth a few thousand years ago rather than having evolved over millions or billions of years.The National Park Service has begun to develop an Ice Age Flood Tour, consisting of a driving tour of the prominent features. At this time there is little more than a web site describing some of the features and a map of some of the features. Because of that I decided to tour much of the area and put together a tour of the features that I had visited along with maps and descriptions of points along the route The map was specifically designed for the use of my family to use so that they might be able to understand the very unique and absolutely amazing features and landscapes created by the flood(s). It is for that reason that my tour passes through my hometown of Prosser, Washington.

This heavily illustrated book contains descriptions and geologic interpretations of photographs (mostly aerial) illustrating the power and magnitude of repeated Ice Age flooding in the Pacific Northwest, as recently as 14,000 years ago. The scale of Ice Age floods was so huge that today it is often difficult to see and appreciate the power and magnitude of such megafloods from ground level. However, from the air, landforms created by the floods often come into clear focus. Aerial images, obtained via unmanned aerial vehicle (drone) as well as fixed-wing airplane, add a new perspective on evidence gathered by dozens of scientists since 1923.

Geologist Bruce Bjornstad has written the most comprehensive guide book yet to the incredible landforms scoured out by the Ice Age floods in the Mid-Columbia Basin.

New York's version of Los Angeles's famous La Brea Tar Pits? Sand Dunes in the city of Albany? Frederic Church's Olana, a gift of the Ice Age? A Niagara Falls in Philmont? Mastodons in Greenville? The Vanderbilt Mansion and Springwood, FDR's home in Hyde Park, at risk? Join Professors Robert and Johanna Titus on a tour of the Hudson Valley and see this familiar region with new eyes the eyes of geologists who see a half-mile-thick sheet of ice grinding its way down the valley and overtopping even the highest mountains. With the Tituses as your guides, "see" an ancient Manhattan high and dry with the Atlantic shoreline 100 miles to the southeast, North/South Lake State Park as a giant and frigid "waterslide park," and the immense expanse of Glacial Lake Albany stretching the entire length of the Hudson Valley with its deltas that would become the sites of some of America's most famous estates. Finally, witness the cataclysmic flood that cascaded through the valley at the end of the Ice Age as a great ice dam broke and a gigantic wall of water swept down the valley. The Tituses take the reader through the Catskills, the Shawangunks, the Taconics, along the banks of the Hudson River, to Bash Bish Falls and Lake Taghkanic to all those unique and beautiful places that make the Hudson Valley "the landscape that defined America" and demonstrate that all this rose phoenix-like from the devastation caused by the slow, inexorable advance of a grinding, half-mile-thick bulldozer of ice and the raging flood that followed its retreat. The result of these devastating events is the landscape that inspired the Hudson River School painters and America's pioneer landscape architects gifts of the Ice Age, and the familiar landscape we enjoy today.

Ice Age Earth provides the first detailed review of global environmental change in the Late Quaternary. Significant geological and climatic events are analysed within a review of glacial and periglacial history. The melting history of the last ice sheets reveals that complex, dynamic and catastrophic change occurred, change which affected the circulation of the atmosphere and oceans and the stability of the Earth's crust.
