Editorial Reviews

"Geomorphology has mastered an excellent balance between Canadian content and interesting international examples. It skillfully leads students through the processes and landforms that shape the Earth's surface. . . . There is no other text or combination of texts that could adequately replacethis invaluable resource on the Canadian geographer's bookshelf." --Jaclyn Cockburn, University of Guelph
