Geology for Walkers

Geology for Walkers cover

Author: Steve Peacock (Corpus Christi 1975)

Publisher: Self-published

Written by a geologist and fellow walker, this book is for the outdoor enthusiast curious to learn more about, and develop a deeper appreciation for, the story behind the geology around them.

Constructed as a 'companion for the scientifically curious' - rather than as a textbook - Geology for Walkers is written in clear language and is packed with bold, colourful illustrations to convey the geological concepts at work.

The book draws on the UK's national trails to provide numerous examples of where to 'walk the UK's geology', as well as uniquely showing how to utilise a local geological map to bring new insights to the reader's own favourite walks - wherever they may be.

Overall, the goal is to add a new perspective to your walks - one that demonstrates it really is more than "just a rock"!
