Content descriptions

General Note:
"Geology facts rock!" -- cover.
Summary, etc.:
Think rocks are boring? Hard to like? Kinda just sit there, doing nothing? Why even write a whole book about them? Bethany Barton will tell you why ... because we wouldn't be here if there were no rocks! From the Grand Canyon to volcanoes to diamonds and fossils, geology--the study of rocks--shows us where we've been and where we're going. With tons of humor and scores of fascinating facts, Bethany Barton introduces younger readers to geology and why rocks matter ... enough to write a whole book about them!
