"Earth is a very small part of a vast universe, but it is our home. It provides the resources that support our modern society and the ingredients necessary to maintain life. Knowledge of our physical environment is critical to our well-being and vital toour survival. A basic geology course can help a person gain such an understanding. It can also take advantage of the interest and curiosity many of us have about our planet--its landscapes and the processes that create and alter them. The eleventh edition of Earth: An Introduction to Physical Geology, like its predecessors, is a college-level text that is intended to be a meaningful, non-technical survey for students taking their first course in geology. In addition to being informative and up-to-date, amajor goal of Earth is to meet the need of students for a readable and user-friendly text, a book that is a highly usable "tool" for learning the basic principles and concepts of geology"--Provided by publisher.

Key Benefit: A straightforward, non-technical presentation of material is only part of the appeal offered by the latest edition of the best-selling Earth by Ed Tarbuck and Fred Lutgens. The book also presents carefully crafted illustrations by Dennis Tasa that are geologically accurate and visually appealing, and coverage of the most recent geologic events. Key Topics: Fascinating coverage including: the floods that devastated Grand Forks, ND and other parts of North Dakota, Minnesota, and Manitoba; earthquake prediction; geothermal energy; the environmental effects of burning fossil fuel; planetary geology, and so much more. Market: An ideal book for those interested in physical geology, but have little background in this area.
