The Elements of Geology
by William Harmon Norton
Publisher: Ginn & company 1905
Number of pages: 461
The present work is the outcome of the need of a text-book of very simple outline, in which causes and their consequences should be knit together as closely as possible. The author has ventured to depart from the common usage which subdivides geology into a number of departments, -- dynamical, structural, physiographic, and historical, -- and to treat in immediate connection with each geological process the land forms and the rock structures which it has produced.
