Geology Underfoot in Western Washington Book Launch a big success!

A very belated but very hearty thanks to all who came to the standing-room-only Grand Book Launch event May 12 at the Whatcom Museum, sponsored by Village Books, North Cascades Institute, and the Museum. It was a great pleasure to share Geology Underfoot in Western Washington with the huge crowd, sign copies, and tell you a bit about my background, how the book came about and how I put it together. Village Books sold out their entire advance shipment. The rest of the print run is on its way across the Pacific and will be available for bookstores at the end of May. NOW IS THE TIME TO ORDER A COPY FROM YOUR FAVORITE BOOKSTORE! The store will obtain copies via their distributors. Some sources tell me that advance sales are pretty brisk. The initial print run is 5000 copies. Mountain Press Publishing and I think the first printing will go fast, so don’t delay.

I am available for presentations at bookstores and your organizations throughout western Washington and down to Portland. Contact your bookstore, and drop me an email.

Best regards,

Dave Tucker

  1. Been anxiously awaiting my copy that has been on order at my local bookstore (after years of hearing about it’s making) and can’t wait to read it and check out some interesting geology. Thanks Dave for fueling an interest in this topic for myself and countless others!

  2. And a very hearty congratulations to you, Dave, on a job well done!

    Thank you for getting people to stand up and be acknowledged at your presentation. It was a testament to your skills as a geologist, and to the respect you’ve earned from this community. Haven’t had time to do more than scan parts of your book, but already I am excited by the unique coverage of this area, such as the illustrations of individual accreted terranes. Hope you now have more time to relax, pet the cats, and catch up on sleep!

  4. I tried to order your book at Barnes and Noble but they told me they are not carrying it. In other words they said I couldn’t even order it through the warehouse. Just thought you might be interested in knowing that.
    I guess I’ll next try Amazon.
    I do hope it continues to sell well.

    • What Barnes and Noble, Ann? You might pass along to them that the book is the #1 new geology book on Amazon, and will be available the first of June. The Barnes and Nobel in Vancouver WA will be hosting me for a book talk [no date agreed yet].
