    I’m trying to find a printed copy of Geology by Geikie. I see tons of ones from either James or Arch something, so I’m not sure which is correct?

    • Jordan Smith

      If you look on the Links and Tips page for Hours in the Out-of-Doors, you’ll find a list of books mentioned with links to find each book.Geology is by James Geikie, and a digital version is available on Google Books so you can see what it looks like inside.
