'Annals of the Former World: Basin & Range

McPhee, John, 1931-

The New Yorker, 20 Oct. 1980. First Edition. Periodical. Article in The New Yorker, 20 Oct. 1980, pp. 58-136. The first appearance in print of this work. "Most mountain ranges around the world are the result of compression, of segments of the earth's crust being brought together, bent, mashed, thrust and folded, squeezed up into the sky-- the Himalaya, the Appalachians, the Alps, the Urals, the Andes. The ranges of the Basin and Range came up another way, The crust-- in this region between the Rockies and the Sierra-- is spreading out, being stretched, being thinned, being literally pulled to pieces. The sites of Reno and Salt Lake City, on opposite sides of the province, have moved apart fifty miles. The crust of the Great Basin has broken into blocks... irregular in shape. They... suggest stretch marks. Which they are." Stock#27282.
