A new way of reading physical geology, Lutgens/Tarbuckrs"s "Essentials of Geology, 10e" employs a superior new graphic design to make a trusted text thatrs"s already number one with professors become number one with students. This edition offers completely updated material and an extensively revised design, yet retains the hallmarks instructors have come to expect from Lutgens and Tarbuck a student-friendly writing style, outstanding illustrations by Dennis Tasa that are both geologically accurate and visually appealing, and updated coverage of the most recent geologic events.
