"This third edition of a well known introductory guide discusses from first principles the most important types of geological structures and their manifestation on geological maps. An ideal text for first year undergraduates and others wishing to acquire these skills."

"Geological Structures and Maps is exactly what the title says – an introduction to the geometry of simple structures and what they look like on geologic maps [...] this book is refreshingly clear and to-the-point."
