"This is a marvelous geological description of the San Diego area written by the acknowledged savant of the region. It is written for the enthusiastic amateur and is a wonderful guide to the pathways and byways of San Diego. The professional geologist will also find the work useful, both as a guide and teaching instrument." - William A. Nierenberg, Director Emeritus Scripps Institution of Oceanography La Jolla CA.

Rise and Fall of San Diego tells the prehistory of the San Diego area as recorded in the layers of sedimentary rocks. The land here has risen and fallen independently from the sea level which also has risen and fallen. The ever-changing landscapes and animal life through time are examined in this book. Numerous field-trips direct the reader to key localities to observe and understand the history stored in the rocks.
