About this title


This top-selling historical geology text provides an excellent balance of basic geology and paleontology. THE EARTH THROUGH TIME provides rich, authoritative coverage of the history of the Earth, offering the most comprehensive history of the earth on the market today. It maintains its strong approach to stratigraphy and paleontology that others have lost, while updating new finds in areas of radiometric dating, stratigraphic nomenclature, and renewed ideas in paleontology (e.g., new discoveries of dinosaurs, mass extinctions, and current information found in the literature). The paleogeographic maps are excellent in detail and are a vital component in understanding the earth's history.

From the Back Cover:

Experience a story of remarkable events and extraordinary creatures

Seafloors thrust up to form mountain ranges, earthquakes, continents broken apart, fiery floods of lava, mass extinctions... No it’s not the latest blockbuster movie; it’s the story of our planet Earth––a story filled with remarkable events and extraordinary creatures.

In The Earth Through Time, Eighth Edition, Harold Levin continues to bring the fascinating story of the Earth’s geological history to life. Levin’s stimulating, highly visual, comprehensive, and thought-provoking approach to historical geology promotes a spirit of intellectual curiosity. Levin explains how the Earth was born, how it has changed through eons of time, what caused the changes, how those changes affected life in the Earth’s geologic past, and how geologists "read the rocks" to write the Earth's history.

Now updated and revised with many new photographs and graphics, the new Eighth Edition is now even more lively, accessible, and engaging than ever before.


  • Stunning artwork that brings the ancient world to life. In addition, the text is richly illustrated with geologic block diagrams, cross-sections, stratigraphic maps, paleogeographic maps, and phylogenetic trees.
  • Balanced coverage of basic geology and paleontology, with a strong approach to stratigraphy and paleontology.
  • Emphasizes questions about past geologic events and the processes used in finding answers.
  • Integrated approach to the Earth’s systems––the solid Earth, the atmosphere, and the biosphere.
  • Geology of National Parks boxes encourage readers to visit these parks to appreciate their geological significance.
  • A companion website(, including hot links, quizzes, student study guide, and chapter tutorials.
