The Changing Face of the Earth
The Break-up of Pangaea and Continental Drift Over the Past 250 Million Years in Ten StepsPaperback - 2003

It includes 11 maps, based on recent scientific work, with explanatory notes, a glossary of terms and a CD-ROM of the map images in bmp, tiff, pict and powerpoint formats.
