Physical Geography, Geology, Palaeontology, Biblical Authority

    Briefly describes the Himalayas and Hindu Kush, claiming Dhaulagiri as the highest known peak. 'The skeletons of horses have been found, in these mountains, so far from the plains, that they never could have existed alive in such a situation. It is a curious fact in geology; and with many others of a similar nature, tends to confirm the inspired account of the universal deluge'.
