This book, the first written on the geology of Hells Canyon, tells the story of the canyon's geologic evolution. The story walks a narrow path by describing complex geologic ideas and theories in a manner that laymen can appreciate and students and professional geologists can use.
Exotic Terrane (VHS format)

This video traces the fascinating history of the mysterious rocks in the Hells Canyon region on the Oregon-Idaho border, and provides an overview of tectonic activity along the Pacific coast. Beautiful scenery, computer modeling, discoveries in the field and narration by John Forsythe combine to create a scientific adventure.
Conversations With An Idaho Bartender
