Abstract

PROF. RUSSELL'S beautiful volume is, in some sense, a companion to Sir Archibald Geikie's account of the volcanoes of Great Britain; but whereas the latter deals with volcanic relics of all ages in an area the whole of which has been studied in considerable detail, the former has to do only with still active volcanoes, or such as have been in activity since the beginning of the Tertiary era, while in many of the districts dealt with but little scientific information is available.

Volcanoes of North America; a Reading Lesson for Students of Geography and Geology.

By Israel C. Russell, Professor of Geology, University of Michigan, Pp. xiv + 346. (New York: The Macmillan Co. London: Macmillan and Co., Ltd., 1897.)
