Ross Publishing announced its latest book by Paul Young, EdD, emeritus professor of Education, entitled Niagara Falls, Survivor of the Ice Age, the Natural History of the Niagara River and Its Gorge. It is a recounting of the 12,000 year old factors producing the five prominent sections of the gorge, retreating glaciers, vanishing lakes, a forty acre whirlpool that reverses, variations in the height of the falls and differing volumes of water cascading over the falls. Included is the geologic history of the different rock layers along the gorge revealing how and where they were originally formed, and their impact on the seven mile gorge and its recession. The book is meant for the general reader, local residents and visitors to the area.
