Our Planet, Its Past and Future

Excerpt from Our Planet, Its Past and Future: Or Lectures on Geology While lecturing upon Geology, which I have done for the last thirteen years, in various parts of the United States and Canada, I have been requested many times to write a volume embodying the substance of my lectures, so that those who had heard them in public might be able to read and study them in private. In accordance with their request, I have written this volume; divesting it, as I do my lectures, as far as possible, of the technicalities by which the science of Geology is so frequently obscured, and presenting it in the same order in which it is presented by Nature herself. I am indebted to Lyell, Owen, Mantell, Buckland, Ansted, Hall, Dana, and many others; and have freely used their works, as they had done the writings of previous authors. I am also indebted to Prof. Henry A. Ward of Rochester for copies of engravings contained in his "Catalogue of Casts of Fossils." At vast expense, and by years of persevering labor, directed by rare ability and scientific culture, he has collected many hundreds of rare and unique fossils and casts, to the great advancement of Geology in America.
