The same geological forces that threaten our lives with earthquakes and volcanic eruptions also nourish our spirits by forming Oregon's spectacular mountains, valleys, and coastlines. Dr. Robert J. Lillie relates this "Beauty from the Beast" story of the Pacific Northwest by highlighting spectacular scenery in Oregon State Parks and other natural areas. He draws on his experience as a geology professor, park ranger and graphic illustrator to remind Oregon residents and visitors that our hometowns and iconic state parks are subject to geologic processes that affect our lives and livelihoods. By learning to live with the beast of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, we can more-fully appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.
