A nice addition to any library.

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-11-16) Good Permalink

     Told in simple language with beautiful illustrations, this book would be ideal for students with a budding interest in geology. Early scientists in the field are briefly overviewed. Includes a timeline and glossary. Excellent choice for reluctant readers too.
