The Yorkshire Dales : Landscape and Geology Paperback
by Tony Waltham
This book is the first in an exciting new series that tells the story of some of Britain's most beautiful landscapes.
Written with the general reader - the walker, the lover of the countryside - firmly in mind, this opens the door onto a fascinating story of ancient oceans, forests, shallow seas and ice.
Over millions of years, the stunning limestone landscape has been laid down at the bottom of tropical seas, deformed by movements in the earth's crust and shaped giant glaciers and, in our own time, the simple effects of rivers and rain water.
