Geology Underfoot in Death Valley and Owens Valley by Sharp & Glazner.
Here in eastern California "lies the greatest dryland relief in the contiguous United States: the 14, 776-foot difference between Mt. Whitney at 14,494 feet above sea level in the Sierra Nevada and Badwater Basin at 282 feet below sea level in Death Valley. That relief alone provides spectacular scenery, a wide range of environments, and a rich variety of landforms." The first 16 chapters describe the geology in and around Death Valley National Park, including maps and black & white pictures.
