William Smith had a fabulous combination of background, interest, and opportunity. This is a fascinating story of how he developed the concepts of geology as science. The paperback version has good maps. The hardback has beautiful maps.

I read this because I liked _The Professor and the Madman_. Now I read anything by Simon Winchester.
