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
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."
