  • Atlantis, Found? An investigation into ancient accounts, bathymetry and climatology

    by Jonathan Northcote
    What if Plato's Atlantis was a real, identifiable place? How would this affect accepted history (where does history start and pre-history end) and, even, accepted geology? This is NOT about any Atlantean civilisation. It is about comparing Plato's description of the physical environment of Atlantis with a sunken area in the Atlantic ocean and showing (by reference to many peer-reviewed scientific works) that most of Plato's descriptions are found in this sunken area.

  • Interpret: What do Plants tell us? RFS Book 4

    by Tina Bone

  • Drying Up: River Friend Series Book 1

    by Tina Bone
    What is the worst that can happen to a river? That it vanishes, and all its life vanishes with it: the people, the plants, the animals—not just the fish, but the crops, the cattle, the forests, the everything. All are made mostly of water. It is the natural fresh water in the land, derived from rain, which supports and sustains us. By over-abstracting, polluting, and damaging our wonderful, unique rivers and streams, they now support a fraction of the life that they should. This little book i... more

Latin and English names are listed with lots of illustrations showing the 70 or so most common water plants in the UK. Although this can be a pocket-size identification field manual for those who like to strut by rivers and streams, it is also a reference guide for the rest of the little books in the River ... more
