Every Rock Tells A Story: Seashells In The Mountains

By Richard Kehmeier
Regular price $18.00


Every Rock Tells a Story is a series of books for young adults conceived by geologist Richard Kehmeier. The series’ “raison d’etre” is to emphasize the types of knowledge geologists must have to understand the evolution of our physical planet. Rather than explaining science with confusing terms and unfathomable concepts, these books provide simple, understandable explanations of terms and concepts in a story form.

Geology is often misunderstood because of the difficulty understanding subjects like geological time, rock names, mineral identification, and even faulting and volcanoes. Many people are exposed to geology in their own backyards every day and many more are introduced to it when they travel. It is the author’s hope that this series of books will help answer many questions young people may have about geology, ignite their curiosity about our planet, and help them understand how they can have careers in this fascinating and dynamic field of science.
