In 1912, German meteorologist Alfred Wegener published his groundbreaking theory of continental displacement. His theory proposed that the continents were once a single land mass but had slowly moved apart over millions of years. This book examines the scientific process behind Wegener's theory and how it challenged prevailing views of the time.
