Ice Age cataclysms violently transformed the Northwest thousands of years ago, leaving behind scores of flood features, many found nowhere else on Earth. The sheer enormity of the Ice Age floods is mind-boggling. The floods helped gouge out Idaho's largest and deepest lake, Pend Oreille, and sculpted the weird topography of eastern Washington.

Following up on his first volume, On the Trail of the Ice Age Floods: A geological field guide to the Mid-Columbia Basin, geologist Bruce Bjornstad joined forces with colleage Eugene Kiver to guide readers upstream - northward into the Channeled Scabland and northern Idaho. The authors explore numerous flood features and present dozens of trails and tours directing readers to experience, firsthand, the striking aftermath of the Ice Age Floods.

Praise For…

This remarkably detailed and authoritative guide leads you by trail, road and aerial tour to discover for yourself the amazing world of cataclysmic flood geology. You cannot get a better published source for your field excursions into this fascinating region. - Victor R. Baker, Ph.D., Regents Professor, University of Arizona

After hiking and exploring the Channeled Scabland region for 35 years, I didn't know what I was missing until I read this book. The authors rock. - Rich Landers, Outdoors Editor, The Spokesman-Review
