This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1870 edition. Excerpt: ...in the form of ranges, though these latter do occur; and more or less continuous escarpments rising with the outcrop of some of the stronger beds are very frequent. A broken chain passes nearly east and west through the Runnislands of Putchum, Khurreer and Bela to Chorar, (in the former being flanked by a smaller range): --another borders the Runn on the north side of Kutch Proper: --one, called the Charwar range, runs east and west to the southward of Bhooj, the capital of the province: and there are lesser ranges in other parts of the district, with many clusters and isolated hills frequently conical in form. The hills of the Wagur or eastern side of the district, take no definite direction. They are the denuded remnants of what would have been a somewhat flattened and rolling dome shaped mass if their strata were continuous instead of having been extensively operated upon by denudation. There are no lofty elevations in Kuteh; that which is reputed to be the highest, namely, Dhenodur hill, overlooking the Runn on the western side of the province giving a measurement (by Aneroid) of but 1,070 feet above the Runn; several others, however, have elevations not greatly less.J Nearly all the ranges and many of the hills are steeply scarped on the north, and pass by gentle slopes into the plains to the south as a consequence of their structure, the beds in general having long southerly inclinations at low angles from three parallel lines of disturbance or dislocation which extend, 1st, from Putchum Isle to Chorar; 2nd, from Lukput, along the south edge of the Runn, to Doodye towards Wagur; and 3rd, from near Roha to the neighbourhood of Butchao, passing at the northern foot of the Charwar hills. North of these lines, and just in their vicinity, the beds.show more
