Rocks and Rivers, by Ellis W. Shuler: A book written from the cultural and popular, rather than from the "scholarly" point of view; yet Rocks And Rivers will be found highly readable by both scientist and layman because of its perfect blending of scientific accuracy and detail and its down-to-earth language. It is richly illustrated with photographs of all types of geological formations gathered from almost every State in the Nation. Horticulture and Horticulturists in Early Texas, by Samuel Wood Geiser: An historical account of scientific horticulture in Texas, 1830-1930. It consists of two parts.
