About this book

Abridged version of the authors' Precambrian Geology.

Goodwin does a superb job of presenting the basic geologic, geochronologic, and correlative data for each geologic province,...Principles of Precambrian Geology does a good job of meeting its goal of providing a detailed inventory of Precambrian geologic provinces and problems...Principles of Precambrian Geology will probably be a standard reference for many years. --Timothy M. Kusky, Boston University, GSA TODAY.
