Allmendinger and Jordan (1981) have attempted to relate plutonism, metamorphism, and thrusting in the Cordillera by interpreting selected features of the Sevier hinterland. Although the pros and cons of their large-scale speculations have been previously discussed (Burchfiel and Davis, 1975; Hamilton, 1978), the specifics of their Jurassic and Cretaceous scenario behind the thrust belt invite comment.
