Arizona geologist flies on NPR
NPR aired an excellent piece this morning on Flagstaff, Arizona geologist-pilot-physician-photographer Michael Collier - read it at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/
Collier's latest book (#13) is Over the Mountains, An Aerial View of Geology (Mikaya Press), described as "the first in a new series of picture books focused on the evolution of landscapes."
He also has an exhibit of 45 photographs, entitled Stones from the Sky, that will be shown at the AAAS headquarters in Washington, D.C., running from June 7 to Sept. 14, 2007.
The UA Press published a number of Collier's books - http://www.uapress.arizona.edu/catalogs/author_books.php?id=1590
