CORNWALL'S GEOLOGY AND SCENERY: AN INTRODUCTION

(SECOND HAND COPY - FIRST EDITION)

By Colin Bristow

An excellent introduction to the rocks of Cornwall, written in layman's language and profusely illustrated.

The scenery of Cornwall is based on a unique geological foundation. A history of tropical seas, drifting continents, huge volcanic eruptions, deep ocean canyons, the crust crumpling into tightly-folded mountainous masses, and then dinosaurs roaming upon an island in tropical surroundings. This fascinating story, culminating in the dread cold of the Ice Age, is told simply and interestingly in this book.
