Interest in the environment has never been greater and yet most of us
have little knowledge about the 4 billion years of history that formed
it. This book explains the principles of geology, geography and
geomorphology, and shows how a basic understanding of geological
timescales, plate tectonics and landforms can help you 'read' the great
outdoors. This is a highly illustrated book with a very accessible text
that clearly illuminates the landscape around us.
