THE CHANGING EARTH: EXPLORING GEOLOGY AND EVOLUTION, 6e, International Edition, is a leader in the Introductory Geology course. The content of the sixth edition is based on the best-selling texts PHYSICAL GEOLOGY: EXPLORING THE EARTH, International Edition and HISTORICAL GEOLOGY: EVOLUTION OF EARTH AND LIFE THROUGH TIME, International Edition both written by James S. Monroe and Reed Wicander. Briefer than the previous edition and maintaining a consistent and clear writing style throughout, the text provides balanced coverage of physical and historical geology with engaging, real-life examples that draw you into the material. The sixth edition includes excellent illustrations, photographs, and maps that aid your understanding of this especially visual science. The book design presents the material in easily digestible chapters, with clear delineations between sections and well-placed artwork.
