     Try the book "Foundation Design, Principles And Practices" by Donald 
     P. Caduto., Prentice Hall, 1994.  I find it to be a good mix of 
     geotechnical and structural.  It's used as a text book at several 
     Southern California universities and it's also a good reference for 
     the practicing engineer.
