The Rise and Fall of the Southern Alps

NZ - Natural History

In this new book, geologist Glen Coates tells how the alps were formed from ancient marine sediments, how they were uplifted to become mountains, and how they are being eroded down to produce the spectacular landscape seen today in the South Island. Non-technical language, copious illustrations and artwork result in a book that will fascinate all who take an interest in their landscape and heritage.
