This tenth edition of Essentials of Geology offers completely updated material and an extensively revised design, yet retains the hallmarks instructors have come to expect from Lutgens and Tarbuck — a student-friendly writing style, outstanding illustrations by Dennis Tasa that are both geologically accurate and visually appealing, and updated coverage of the most recent geologic events.


Intended as a nontechnical survey for people with little scientific background, this introductory textbook explains basic geology in chapters devoted to volcanos, weathering, running water, glaciation, shorelines, earthquakes, mountain building, plate tectonics, and other topics. The CD-ROM contains animations and interactive exercises for the reinforcement of key geologic concepts. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
