Fieldwork:
A Geologist's Memoir of the Kalahari
Christopher Scholz

Book Description
Chapter 1

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Fieldwork is delightful. Like Bill Menard's The Ocean of Truth, this book gives an account of how earth science works. However, it also has a story to tell. Often the logistical problems behind a scientific expedition are as captivating as the science itself. Christopher Scholz's primary objective is to spell out the logistical planning and execution that is required to make a scientific discovery."--Terry Engelder, Pennsylvania State University

"In Fieldwork, we learn about aspects of science and about the motivation of a scientist as well as about the problems facing a country emerging from a colonial past. The book makes a bridge between various kinds of human endeavors. It's very well-written, very readable, and hard to put down."--Alfred G. Fischer, University of Southern California
