Both authors have created this textbook to show students how sedimentary strata serves geologists as a continuous record of Earth's history.

The authors' conversational style, and focus on the important concepts make the book highly accessible to an undergraduate audience.

Such complex ideas are broken down and made understandable to geology students.

Written for a first course in sedimentary geology or sedimentary rocks and stratigraphy (with only an introductory geology/physical geology course as a prerequisite).

Each chapter focuses on general principles, without bringing in too much detail too quickly, allowing students to develop a solid base level of understanding core concepts.

An accessible title for those covering two principal fields of sedimentary geology-sedimentary petrology (properties of sedimentary rocks, their classification and nomenclature) and stratigraphy (defines and describes natural bodies of rock).
