Editorial Reviews


Earth Science and Human History 101 describes basic principles of geology and shows how the earth affected history and is affecting present events.

The volume has four sections:

Processes in the atmosphere, oceans, and rivers

Plate tectonics

The conflict between the evidence for evolution during the long history of the earth and the beliefs of creationists

Resources and the environment

The volume includes a glossary, numerous illustrations, and a bibliography of works useful for further research.

"The writing flows smoothly, and the information is clearly worded with many elucidatory examples that teachers will be able to use to support content. The New Orleans flood, the San Francisco earthquake, and Lewis and Clark's expedition all provide a rich context in which to bring the message home. There are many line drawings and black-and-white photos to illustrate the pages of this unique treatment. It's appropriate for research, teacher background reading, or casual reading by students with a special interest in the topic."


National Science Teachers Association

Book Description

Describes how the processes of the earth has impacted human history

More About the Author

i am a retired Professor of Geology. i was on the faculty of Rice University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A life spent observing academe led me to conclude that colleges and universities are more interested in their reputations than their students. To explain this feeling i invented fictional Winford College and am publishing, with Lulu, an ebook titled Fame and Responsibility at Winford College. The humor in the book is enhanced by sketches by Sylvia A. Lauterborn.

My concern is primarily for women students. I first became involved when I spent 5 years in charge of a women's residence at Rice. My continuing concern is shown in two books listed on the Amazon website - Women, Rocks, and Professors; Memories of a University Professor; and Women's College Education in the Past Two Centuries.

Useful as a complementary and introductory textbook in teaching and learning earth sciences. Up to the point and yet comprehensive. Perfect for 101.
