"A large part of RUGGED LANDSCAPE is taken up with sections dealing with general geological principles, illustrated by numerous examples drawn from the central New Zealand regions - Palmerston ?North, the Manawatu, the Wairarapa, Nelson and Marlborough. The author discusses basic principles such as geological time, relative versus absolute ages, the New Zealand geosyncline, alteration by heat and pressure, and mountain building in ancestral New Zealand. Then follow chapters on the New Zealand peneplain, renewed mountain-building and faulting. A close look is taken at Palmerston ?North's faults, recent earth movements in the Manawatu, Ice Age moulding of the landscape, the origin of cook Strait and Port Nicholson. Recent earth movements in the Palmerston ?North region are discussed, followed by comments on earthquakes. Finally, there is a look into the geological future of the whole region."
