From the Publisher:

Exploring Earth is the first introductory text to take an integrative approach to physical geology within the framework of geologic processes. Students with little or no scientific background will gain more from this approach because it presents the material in a more interesting context. This approach presents the richness of the field of geology in its entirety while making the subject interesting and easier to learn. The text's conventional table of contents is followed by a topical table of contents, to better enable instructors to find all the coverage of a particular topic.

From the Back Cover:

By employing plate tectonics as its central and unifying theme, Exploring Earth takes an innovative, integrative, and process-oriented approach in presenting the traditional breadth of physical geology topics.

Exploring Earth features:

  • Clear, precise prose that renders understandable even the most complex concepts.
  • An exceptional art program developed by the authors.
  • Engaging "Focus On" essays that tie the theory to our daily lives.
