FROM THIS EPISODE

book.jpgIn 1793, a canal digger's startling discovery turned the fledgling science of geology upside down. Nearly twenty years later, William Smith published a surprisingly beautifully hand painted map of the underside of England. The victim of plagiarism wound up in debtors' prison, then on the streets of London searching for work, until he was rescued by the Geological Society of London. Author Simon Winchester discusses his new book, The Map that Changed the World with host Jonathan Kirsh.
