Overview

Excerpt from An Advanced Practical Physical Geography for Public and Scondary Schools

IN writing this book it has been the aim of the authors to present a clear and logical account of geographical phenomena. To do this it has been found necessary to touch lightly some of the main principles of other sciences, such as astronomy, mathematics, geology, and biology. Moreover, in order to comply with and help forward the growing tendency to consider geography as the science which above all others is full of every phase of human interest, the authors have made a definite attempt to show the relation that exists between man and the chief phenomena of nature. Not the least.factor in this attempt is the choice of experiments and practical exer cises, which are for the most part based upon common experience. At the same time the authors have been careful not to include any such exercises as would be un suitable or inconvenient in schools. It is intended that the book shall be a standard text-book for students in training-colleges; for thosein the middle and higher forms in secondary schools, and more especially for pupils taking the Advanced Course - recognized by the Board of Educa tion - in Geography.
