Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An introduction to geology for both majors and nonmajors. The organization of the text is traditional and matches the organization of most lab manuals. For this edition (5th ed., 1991), major revisions have been made in the introductory chapter and in the chapters on igneous rocks, plate tectonics, and mountains, and new photos are used throughout.
