Rocks and the People Who Love Them
Using a graphic-novel format, this engaging and approachable volume relays clear information about different kinds of rocks (including famous sites around the world) and different kinds of geologists (geomorphologists, volcanologists, et al.). Chapters cover how rocks are formed, giving plenty of examples, and explain how “Even if you don’t always notice it, rocks slowly and steadily change.” The colorful illustrations, depicting scientists at work, will have readers wondering if geology is the field for them. Back matter contains a glossary, suggested reading list, link to additional Web sites, and an index.
