This book tells the geological story of a landscape that was at the heart of Scotlands industrial revolution, a story that has been several hundred million years in the making. The patchwork of rocks forming the landscape of the Glasgow and Ayshire area tells us about the dissapearence of and ancient ocean and times when sandy deserts, shallow trolpical seas, vast coal swamps and lava from volcanic eruptions covered the evolving landscape. Worn and moulded by ice sheets, the modern landscape continues to change though river and coastal erosion and human activity.
