Alan McKirdy traces Scotland's amazing geological journey of continental collision and changing climates over the past three billion years, from the South Pole to its present location, explaining for the non-specialist reader why the landscape looks the way it does today. He also explores how Scots and those working in Scotland have played a seminal role in the development of the science of geology, understanding Earth processes at a local and global scale.
