The Crust of the Earth: The Story of Geology
Keith Clayton
No ISBN
Hardcover
155 pages
Published in 1967 by The Natural History Press
Cover uploaded to profile pictures.

Summary from book jacket:

For thousands of years men speculated about the structures and phenomena of the earth they lived on--mountains, earthquakes, erosion, volcanoes, etc. But it has only been within fairly recent times that men have tested their ideas by investigations in the field. In so doing, they have provided the basis for a truly scientific explanation of the nature and history of the earth's surface and interior. It is such advances that have made the modern science of geology.
Geology today links many realms. It looks back hundreds of millions of years to explain the formation of the planet itself, yet looks ahead to the possibility of predicting tomorrow's earthquakes. It bores deep into the earth, yet it reaches far out into space with the moon-probe. It draws from man's storehouse of basic scientific knowledge, yet it is continually adding to it.
All of this, and more, is the story of geology that this book tells.

Janet Goes Abroad
Jeanne Judson
No ISBN
Paperback
160 pages
Published in 1966 by Hamilton House, Inc.
Cover uploaded

Summary from back cover:

Janet Sayre had always dreamed about going to Europe, and now it was really going to happen. But the whole thing had come about in such a strange way. First, meeting a man on an afternoon walk. Then, finding that same man in her boss's office, where he asked that Janet escort a six-year-old girl to England. Janet was to pose as the child's "aunt" and was to personally deliver the girl to her Mother.

The man turned out to be Colin MacGregor, a successful lawyer. He was a tall, handsome Scotsman with an air of mystery about him. He asked Janet only to do him this favor--nothing more.

What could Janet do but say yes?
It was going to be an adventure she would never forget.
And Colin MacGregor did not seem the kind of man to turn down.
