Rocktaluses, and all the varied alluvium carried seaward as the outcash of continental land, well deserve a chapter to themselves.

Overview

Excerpt from Rocks and Their Origins

Rocktaluses, and all the varied alluvium carried seaward as the outcash of continental land, well deserve a chapter to themselves. But there is really no end to the subject, which embraces all the accumulative processes of the earth. A few vacation-journeys, judiciously planned out, teach us that text-books are merely signposts to set us on what is believed to be the way. When the path enters the great forest, or rises above green lakelets to the crags, we find there those who went before us, pointing to unconquered lands.
