Detailed Product Description
New York, 1986, 1st edition. 236 pp, b&w photos, diagrams, index. An analysis of life and nature at 10,000 feet and above. The universal laws of nature, including plate tectonics, rock and mountain formation, fluid mechanics, and glaciers. Original blue and gray cloth hardcover with silver lettering; dust jacket; Fine.

A scientist looks at the world around him from a mountaintop and tells the reader what he sees and answers many complex questions for nonscientific readers: Where do all the rocks come from? Why do eagles glide in circles among the peaks? How old is the earth? How does glacial snow in August lead to a prediction of the next ice age? And much more, in an interesting and readable fashion.
