About this book

Interest in the environment has never been greater and yet most of us have little knowledge about the 4 billion years of history that formed it. This book explains the principles of geology, geography and geomorphology, and shows how a basic understanding of geological timescales, plate tectonics and landforms can help you 'read' the great outdoors. This is a highly illustrated book with a very accessible text that clearly illuminates the landscape around us.

Media reviews

"[...] a practical crash course in interpreting the great outdoors [...] Small enough to fit in a pocket or glovebox but detailed enough to provide useful answers, it is a good overview of how the landscapes we see all around us were formed."
– Countryman (August 2010)

"If your only memory of school geography lessons is terminal boredom rather than terminal moraines, this book will help [...] a practical 'crash course'"
– Cumbria (November 2010)

"Detailed, accessible and small enough to fit in your pocket!"
– The Lady
