Adam Sedgwick - Geologist and Dalesman

Adam Sedgwick - Geologist and Dalesman

For Yorkshire men and women, their geological hero is one of their own, Adam Sedgwick, the son of the Vicar of Dent in the Yorkshire Dales. His story was told in a book that was first published in 1982 by Broad Oak Press in conjunction with the Geological Society of London and Trinity College, Cambridge. This is a facsimile edition of that book, with a new preface.

It tells the story of Sedgwick's life in twelve themes, from his humble beginnings in Dent, to his naming of the Cambrian. His teaching in Cambridge came to mould a new generation of geologists who would follow in his footsteps.
