Excerpt from Field, Laboratory, and Library Manual in Physical Geography

In offering this manual to the public the author wishes to express the hope that it may prove helpful to his fellow-teach ers, and that teachers and pupils alike may get from it at least a portion of the pleasure that he has taken in working out its exercises. The manual consists of readings and exercises selected from those which he has used in his own classes in the high school. He hopes that they may be of value in guiding others in their first attempts at scientific investigation and research.

Physical geography gives the student a broader outlook than any other science in the curriculum of secondary schools. It is a proper culmination of the nature study of the grammar school, and an appropriate introduction to the more technical and rigid sciences of the high school. Its value arises in part from the fact that it touches nature in so many places. Its many sidedness and its alluring bypaths have tempted pupil and teacher alike. However enjoyable the physical side of it may be, it should not be forgotten that it is geography. Its greatest value arises from the fact that it introduces the student to his geographical environment and suggests to him how he may utilize it. Commerce, history, and even sociology have paid their tribute to this study. The intimate and necessary relation that exists between physical geography and history is the theme of more than one recent and valuable book. In this manual economic phases have been emphasized throughout.
