Product Description
This book explains to the hillwalker, in easy to understand

but accurate terms, how geology has shaped the landscape of Snowdonia. A selection of

thirteen guided walks are used to illustrate this in terms of what can be seen on the

ground.This book, divided into two parts, is intended to help those who love

Snowdonia's mountain scenery to understand how this haunting landscape came about.

The first half narrates the story of colliding continents, volcanoes, mountain-

building and glaciations in creating Snowdonia, explaining why volcanoes occurred,

the rocks they created and how to interpret signs of mountain-building and

glaciations on the ground. The second half describes several recommended walks, of

differing levels of difficulty, but all with a wide variety of geological features to

be seen and, most important, enjoying consistently fantastic views of the very best

of Snowdonia's wonderful scenery.The author has concentrated on what you can see as

you walk around the hills, pointing to conspicuous, easily seen features in rocks and

the overall shape of the terrain in accounting for the present day landscape.
