-- why the earth's forests and waterways are in danger of destruction
-- how the earth's powerful internal forces produce rocks and minerals from the ordinary to the dazzling

Rocky cliffs at the seashore often reveal the geological processes at work creating rocks and minerals. Rocks and Minerals helps explain:

-- how metals are made from ore
-- what space rocks teach us
