This four-volume set presents an overview of earth science from the earliest observations of ancient peoples to discoveries of today's scientists. Earth science includes astronomy, geology, meteorology, and oceanography. The first volume, Words and Terms, defines important words in these sciences. The contributions made by such scientists as Galileo, Sir Edmund Hailey, and Florence Bascom are described in the second volume Important People, which highlights contributions made by women and minority groups to a traditionally male profession. Developments and Discoveries, the third volume, traces the history and development of this science, and the fourth, Debatable Issues, presents the most hotly debated topics today, such as space exploration and global warming. Volume 1: Words and Terms Volume 2: Important People Volume 3: Developments and Discoveries Volume 4: Debatable Issues Grades 6-8

"These four volumes would be useful in a public library, but would be especially useful in middle and high school libraries. Each volume indicates a cumulative index and a timeline of the evolution of earth science. Users will be pleased with the light heft of the volumes and the conversational tone of the text."-E-Streams
"This set furnishes basic information pertinent to the study of earth science....this source would be best utilized in an upper-elementary (grades fix and six) and a grades five through eight middle school where introductory-level earth science classes are taught. The value for the price merits consideration."-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin
"You will need to share these volumes with your science teachers the minute they arrive and help them create assignments that will help students begin their research.... Teachers may be as interested in using these to help define activities related to earth sciences as making assignments to get students into the volumes."-Reference for Students
