Introducing Geology

A Guide to the World of Rocks (Second Edition)

By Graham Park

This introductory book explains in simple terms what geology can tell us about the world. Many objects of great beauty which excite our curiosity, such as crystals or fossils, are to be found by examining rocks. Those searching for and examining such objects gain much more by knowing how and when they originated. Fossils, while interesting in themselves, tell us from their context in geological time of biological evolution, and these clues give an insight into the origins of life on Earth. Copiously illustrated, this second edition of Introducing Geology is for those whose interest in geology has been awakened. It is also an ideal primer for those considering taking a course in Earth Science. Technical terms are kept to a minimum and are explained in a glossary. [Subject: Geology, Natural Science]
