Volumes cover everything from the basic building blocks of geological study, fossils and minerals, to the complex workings of plate tectonics. This volume in the series tells the story of the Earth's early history and how fossils provide clues to our past, what they tell us about the evolutionary process and rise and extinction of species, and how they are laid down in the Earth's rocks. The author also discusses crystals and minerals and how they grow. The volume concludes with further information on rare and unusual minerals.
