“This is the story of the changing geography and life of Australia from the beginning of geological time to the present. The author has always held the view that geology is a subject that can be explained in simple language, largely divested of technical intricacy, without a loss of scientific accuracy.
This story begins in remote antiquity and traces the changes in the shape of the continent and the nature of the land surface through all the geological periods to the present. At the same time it describes the various forms of life that inhabited Australia and the seas around it.
the general reader, interested int eh land that is the Australian heritage, will be as much at home reading this book as the student tin geology.”
