BOOKLIST
"From under the sea to volcanoes, what stories can rocks tell us about the earth's past and how might it forecast its future? Zalasiewicz, a field geologist and stratigrapher, addresses this question and more in this highly visual introduction to the many different kind of rocks, how they are formed, and what they convey about the earth's history... Readers will gain a deeper knowledge of this ubiquitous material that makes up many of the things they use and depend on."
