Revised Edition. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Whether we are aware of it or not, Geology — the study of the substances that make up the earth’s surface and the changes which they have undergone — impinges on the lives of all of us. Our building materials, fuels and countless other products that are used in our everyday life have geological origins. In the country, the scenery that we go to enjoy, the patterns of land use and even the routes we follow are evidences of geological factors, past or present. This book illustrates, and describes in simple language for the general reader, not only the basic minerals, rocks and fossils which make up our planet but also the dramatic, if gradual changes which have sculptured its surface in the way we now see.”
