Bare Bones Geology: For the Geologically Challenged
Bare Bones Geology is a user-friendly book for those who desire some acquaintance with geology: not a technical overload, but a pleasurable introduction to how our Earth works and a bit about its extended past. The book is well-illustrated with 56 photographs and 8 drawings. Twenty-three chapters arrange within three parts: Eyeballing Landscapes, Practical Geology: Coping With Geologic Hazards, and Geology to Stir the Brain. Two chapters in the last part are Asking Dumb Questions in Geology and Answers, and Geological Puzzles: A Selection. The Dumb Questions chapter asks such questions as Why are oceans salty and Did cave men ever slay a dinosaur? Copyright 2003 Alan M. Cvancara.
