    Abstract

    THIS book is one of a Progressive Science Series now being published in the United States and here. The American edition was issued under the title of “The Rivers of North America.” The object of the book, as set out in the introduction, is to assist the reader “in questioning the streams and in understanding their answers, and at the same time creating a desire for more light on other and related chapters of the earth's history,” and in satisfying an insatiable desire which the reader is told “exists for more knowledge concerning the work of the streams to which so many of the changes that have been made on the earth's surface are due.”

    River Development as illustrated by the Rivers of North America.

    By Prof. I. C. Russell. Pp. xv + 327. (London: J. Murray. New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1898.)
