About this book

Complete your New Naturalist collection with Harper Collins's facsimile versions, which are printed on demand. Britain's Structure and Scenery was first published in 1946.

It would be difficult to find an area of comparable size anywhere in the world with such a variety of physical conditions, scenery and consequently of plant and animal life as the British Isles. Our homeland is indeed a geological museum, epitomising in miniature the geological history of the globe. Each hill and valley, each plateau and plain reflects the underlying geological structure or build.

Britain's Structure and Scenery attempts not only to describe the surface features, but also to sketch the long and complex series of events which have given the land its present form the building of the British Isles. It thus deals with the physical background, the stage on which the drama of life is played and which provides the fundamental environment for plants, animals and man.

Media reviews

"[...] a wonderfully graphic picture of the heaving, seething, mass on whose surface our Britain, with all its beauty, has emerged as a bit of scum. Dr. Stamp, with a mass of excellent illustrations, does admirably show how our landscape heaved, split, settled, and was pared down into the countless varieties of beauty packed within our tiny mileage."
