Product Overview

"This is Lamb at his best, telling gripping stories of the Earth, making the reader think s/he's sitting with him around the camp-fire during his field work. Lamb sheds some light on a world of science as rarely told; and the listener feels part of his field trip, warmed by the fire and a glass of local brew."--Maarten J. de Wit, University of Cape Town, Rondebosch

"If I were reading this book for the first time and didn't know what to do with my life, I would immediately enroll in the nearest geology program. This account of life on the Altiplano is a masterful integration of geological concepts and personal experiences."--Grant Heiken, past president, International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior, and co-author of "Volcanoes: Crucibles of Change" and the forthcoming "The Seven Hills of Rome"

"In this very engaging book, Lamb masterfully blends personal anecdotes about trips to exotic places in different parts of the globe with the science of a fascinating range of geological phenomena and processes to explain how mountains in general and the Andes in particular are built."--S. George Philander, Princeton University, author of the forthcoming "Our Affair with El Niñ o: How We Transformed an Enchanting Peruvian Current into a Global Climate Hazard."
