The Lake District: Landscape and Geology
(Crowood Press)

From Scafell’s volcanic crags to the glacial valleys of Wasdale and Buttermere, the Lake District possesses extraordinarily varied scenery in a relatively small area. Geologist Ian Francis presents a visual tour, showing how the region’s rocks were formed, how glaciers sculpted the land, and how human interaction with geology and climate has helped to create one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes.
