[The book is about] James Hutton ...

[The author] tells the ... story of this Scottish gentleman farmer, and how his simple observations on a small tract of land led him to a controversial -- some would say heretical -- theory ... [This book] is also the story of Scotland and the Scottish Enlightenment.-Dust jacket.
