About this title


Discusses the basics of geology, surveys the history of the earth, and describes the development of life on earth

From Library Journal:

Recently there have been numerous books designed to acquaint the educated layperson with the latest developments in physics, cosmology, and biology, but few that describe the present state of belief in geologic science. Thus Cloud's overview of earth history from the beginning is welcome. Written like a good earth science textbook for the nonspecialist, this book does an admirable job of explaining what scientists believe and why they believe it. It details both the conventional wisdom and some of the interesting but controversial new ideas. Recommended for college, university, and large public libraries. Harold D. Shane, Baruch Coll., CUNY
