Garden City, NY: Doubleday, (c 1955.) dj. Hardcover - Using evidence from the natural sciences this book reveals global catastrophes in prehistorical times that altered the climate and geography of the earth, and even caused entire species to be wiped out.

At the same time recent findings mainly in earth and planetary sciences have confirmed his results and conclusions in a really impressive manner." Index. xi, 314 pp. ISBN: 0-671-823442.
