Hong Kong Landscapes by Bernie Owen
Book DescriptionHong Kong has a largely mountainous terrain, very little flat land, no major rivers, no great forests, and a paucity of mineral wealth. The relative poverty of the place led the British Foreign Secretary to remark, in 1841, that Hong Kong was a "barren rock with hardly a house upon it". Prior to that date, the rugged landscape of Hong Kong had evolved, with little human interference, over about 400 million years.

Author Biography - Bernie Owen
Bernie Owen and Raynor Shaw are geologists who have walked, investigated and photographed every corner of Hong Kong from Fan Lau in the very south of Lantau Island to Ping Chau in Mirs Bay in the far northeast of the New Territories. They take a holistic approach to landscape development, and examine both natural processes and human influences on landscape. In doing so, they explore the contributions of different rock types, geological structures and modern surface processes, as well as the profound influence of man through the last few decades and centuries.
