The Blue Mountains: exploring landscapes shaped by the underlying rocks, uplift and erosion
by Peter Hatherly & Ian Brown
published by Windy Cliff Press
This ‘ground-breaking’ book fills a yawning gap in publications on the Blue Mountains. Main author Peter Hatherly is a geophysicist and bushwalker who has spent many years exploring and studying the landforms of the Blue Mountains. He has published important research on the latest geological uplift of the Lapstone Monocline, an event fundamental to the dramatic landscape we see today.
The book is aimed at the general reader and lavishly illustrated with photographs, original maps and innovative diagrams. The content is in three parts – Geology & Geomorphology, Interactions and Landscapes by Region. The first is an explanation of the geological history, the rocks and land-shaping processes, followed by how these interact with Blue Mountains ecology and traditional Aboriginal life. The second half of the book is devoted to describing in detail the landscapes of the main precincts of the Blue Mountains…
- lower Blue Mountains
- Kedumba, Jamison, Megalong & Kanimbla valleys
- Boyd Plateau & Kanangra Walls
- Bindook Highlands, Blue Breaks & Yerranderie
- Upper Grose Valley
- Newnes Plateau & Gardens of Stone
- Wolgan & Capertee valleys
“We hope this book will become an essential guidebook and reference, enjoyed by everyone who wants to know more about the Blue Mountains.” (co-author Ian Brown)
