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.
Robert Yarham is an experienced author who has also written a number of other books. He is also a past editor of the magazine Beautiful Britain.
