THE CHANGING EARTH: EXPLORING GEOLOGY AND EVOLUTION, is a leader in the Introductory Geology course. The content of the sixth edition is based on the best-selling texts PHYSICAL GEOLOGY: EXPLORING THE EARTH and HISTORICAL GEOLOGY: EVOLUTION OF EARTH AND LIFE THROUGH TIME, both written by James S.

The sixth edition includes excellent illustrations, photographs, and maps that aid your understanding of this especially visual science. The book design presents the material in easily digestible chapters, with clear delineations between sections and well-placed artwork.
