9781330166116: The Geography of South Australia: Historical, Physical, Political Commercial (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Geography of South Australia: Historical, Physical, Political Commercial

Considerable attention has been devoted to those aspects of the subject which illustrate the evolution and consolidation of the State. Every South Australian child should know some thing of the land in which he lives - the circumstances of its foundation, the heroic work done by its explorers, the growth of its industries, and the principles of its Government.

The bibliographical references at the end of chapters, or scattered through the text, whilst limited in extent, may be found of service in guiding to further information.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 326 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.Excerpt from The Geography of South Australia: Historical, Physical, Political CommercialThe need of a book dealing with the geographical features of South Australia on broad lines has long been felt. It is hoped that the present work will in some measure supply such a desideratum. The aim of the writer has been to condense into a convenient form such information as may be found useful, not only to those engaged in teaching the subject, but also to a wider circle of general readers. Brevity has been observed throughout, but the principles involved have been brought into prominence, and these can be easily applied by the teacher in amplifying the subject according to local circumstances. In a school book it is sometimes difficult to present a subject clearly and intelligently without creating an overburden of details. Knowledge, to be useful, must include a certain amount of detail, but no more detail has been admitted than was felt necessary for the lucid presentation and exposition of the facts. The physical features of a country are determining factors in its history and possibilities. A large proportion of the work is devoted to this aspect of the subject, and it is hoped will be found of assistance to the teacher in the interpretation of the topographical features of his neighborhood. A river, cape, or mountain, means something more than a mere geographical expression. Each has a history and a destiny, and in the Nature Study of the present day it is necessary to find a reason for their existence and form. In this section of the book not only are the salient physical features of the country noted and described, but the Reason Why has been given. Much new matter, based on original observations, has been included. The attention of teachers is particularly called to our river systems and their geological history. Earth movements have occurred in South Australia of recent geological date that have produced modifications of surface features of great interest. Old river systems have been dismembered, or drained by the creation of new outlets, while others have undergone elevation and obtained a rejuvenescence of energy. Many localities, if looked for, will afford useful field lessons, in this way. In the description of certain topographical features it has been necessary to point out their geological significance. This has been done with as little use of scientific terms as possible. About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
