Indeed, we may never look at a desert dune or a river bank in quite the same way again. Aided by an extensive range of photographs and illustrations, the author first shows how the various properties of sand - such as the shape of its grains, its chemical-mineral composition, and its radioactive age - and its location in the Earth's crust are powerful diagnostic clues in understanding the dynamics of the Earth's surface. Very attractively illustrated and produced, with many fine color photographs. . Scientific American Library Series. Vol. 24. Color Illustrations. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. xi, (iii), 237, (5) pp
