520    From the author of the bestselling The Professor and the 
       Madman comes the fascinating story of the father of modern
       geology In 1793, William Smith, the orphan son of a 
       village blacksmith, made a startling discovery that was to
       turn the science of geology on its head. While surveying 
       the route for a canal near Bath, he noticed that the 
       fossils found in one layer of the rocks he was excavating 
       were very different from those found in another. And out 
       of that realization came an epiphany: that by following 
       these fossils one could trace layers of rocks as they 
       dipped, rose and fell -- clear across England and clear 
       across the world. Obsessed with creating a map that would 
       showcase his discovery, Smith spent the next twenty years 
       traveling England alone, studying rock outcroppings and 
       gathering information. In 1815 he published a hand-painted
       map more than eight feet tall and six feet wide. But four 
       years later, swindled out of his profits, Smith ended up 
       in debtors' prison. His wife went mad. He lived as a 
       homeless man for ten long years. Eventually a kindly 
       aristocrat discovered him; Smith, the quiet genius and 
       'father of geology' was brought back to London and 
       showered with the honors that he rightly deserved. Here 
       now is his astounding story.
