Praise

Praise for Cascadia’s Fault

“In Cascadia’s Fault, [Thompson is] primarily telling a detective story of sorts, about how scientists uncovered the subduction zone. If you’ve been listening to the subduction zone warnings and want to know more about the basis for them, Thompson’s book delivers that knowledge . . . [the] narrative is essentially a fairly calm . . . painstaking tale of scientific knowledge that’s much like the patient work of the seismologists and geologists who discovered the subduction zone.” —The Seattle Sunbreak

“Part detective story, part memoir and part popular science, the narrative is crafted as a thriller . . . Thompson excels when he explains the science.” —The Vancouver Sun

“Reporter Jerry Thompson puts the history of subduction earthquakes and the resultant tsunamis into clear perspective. In Cascadia’s Fault: The Coming Earthquake and Tsunami That Could Devastate North America, Thompson has written a very readable tale of how plate tectonics and earthquake science works, and what we need to know if we insist on being Left Coasters.” —Sacramento News & Review

“A level–headed look at a potentially devastating natural disaster . . . fascinating.” —Booklist
