Reading Roadside Geology of Northern and Central California, Second Edition (Alt and Hyndman, 2016), was like getting reacquainted with an old friend. A few things were different but nothing of consequence. For those looking for a short overview of local and regional geology along the alignments described, it is an easy and quick read supported by color images, easy-to-read cross sections, and simplified local geologic maps.

At $26.00, the book is small enough to carry in a day pack or suitcase and travels well. The book is quite a bargain and would make a great gift for anyone...
