CU-Boulder scientist to discuss new Front Range geology book at Boulder Bookstore

CU-Boulder geoscientist Lon Abbott and his wife, Terri Cook, will discuss their new book, "Geology Underfoot Along Colorado's Front Range," at the Boulder Bookstore on Tuesday.

Abbott and Cook narrate the Front Range’s tale, from its humble beginnings as a flat seafloor through several ghostly incarnations as a towering mountain range. The book’s 21 vignettes lead you to easily accessible stops along the Front Range’s highways and byways, where you’ll meet dinosaurs, discover beaches, look for diamonds, and learn how Pike’s Peak developed from molten magma into the significant landmark it is.

The event begins at 7:30 p.m. on March 19 at the Boulder Bookstore, 1107 Pearl St. in downtown Boulder.
