Geology And Scenery In England And Wales - A. E. Trueman

Pelican, 1952, Paperback ..
Condition: Good.

From the cover: “Why the country looks as it does interests the motorist and the holiday-maker as much as geological structure concerns the student. This Pelican explains very simply why some districts are wooded and others cultivated; why rivers often take the long way round to the sea; why hills may be jagged or rounded; why features like Wenlock Edge or the Chilterns run from north-east to south-west, and a thousand other cases where the landscape of England and Wales is decided by the underlying strata, or the superficial deposits. Geology and its allied sciences have not stood still since Sir Arthur Trueman’s study established itself as a little classic many years ago.”
