THE PLANET IN A PEBBLE:
A JOURNEY INTO EARTH'S DEEP HISTORY


by Jan Zalasiewicz

(Second hand copy) (paperback)

Take a pebble. A slate pebble, say, from a beach in Wales. Look at its rich grey, cut by veins of white quartz. Look closely. There are other markings too...

Captured within are grand stories that reach back to long dead stars, into the depths of the Earth, to vanished continents, and quiet ocean beds above which strange creatures swam. There is much history there, if you know how to unlock it.

Jan Zalasiewicz has produced an extraordinary book showing how much of our planet's history can be told by a single pebble.


Paperback. Published by Oxford University Press. 2012. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs. 234 pages. Second hand copy in good condition.
