SAND: A JOURNEY THROUGH SCIENCE AND THE IMAGINATION

By Michael Welland

(Paperback) (Second hand copy in good condition)
 

At every scale, from grain to vast deserts, sand is an extraordinary substance, reflecting time, space, movement and change. Sand grains can tell you about the history of the Earth, and even solve crimes. To quote Richard Fortey, this is a 'wholly delightful book'.

The geologist Michael Welland is a gifted writer. Weaving together the many facets of sand in an inspiring narrative, he covers science, art and even its music. 

A perfect book to read on the beach!
