Road Guide to the John Day Area of Central Oregon
As Viewed from a Creationist Perspective Dennis Bokovoy, Harold Coffin, and John Hergenrather. 2004. CRS Books, 61 pages (8.5 x 5.5 inches)
This is the first in a series of geological road guides for National Parks, National Monuments, and other significant geological areas. Parts of the John Day area have become the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. The Federal Government has spent millions of dollars upgrading the area, including the building of a new, elaborate visitor center near the old Sheep Rock headquarters. All the exhibits and literature of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument interpret the geological formations, as well as the plants and animals, in terms of long ages and the theory of evolution.This road guide provides the alternative view within the Creation-Flood framework. It provides a mile-by-mile log of significant geological events and features, along with interesting historical tidbits. From the geological data in the area, the road guide shows that the Creation-Flood interpretation is superior to the evolutionary-long ages interpretation. The spiral binding and half-page size allows easy access while driving without damaging the binding of the book.
