Description

Canada's diverse landscape speaks to its fascinating geological history, from towering peaks to Prairie plains, from fertile farmlands of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Lowlands to rugged cliffs of the Atlantic shore. However, the modern landscape is just the latest episode in an epic story spanning more than 4 billion years.

Four Billion Years and Counting unveils the geological history of Canada and makes connections between geology and social issues such as climate change, hazards such as landslides and earthquakes, and other environmental factors. The text features contributions from some 100 specialists, and is richly illustrated with over 500 colour photographs and diagrams. Four Billion Years and Counting is a fascinating exploration of Canada's geology for those who are intrigued by the landscape and the vital connection between ourselves and what lies beneath our feet.

Jim Monger was born in England in 1937 and received his geological education at the University of Reading and the University of Kansas, where he met his wife, Jackie. He then obtained his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia in 1966. He joined the Vancouver office of the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) in 1965, remained there until 1995, and currently is an emeritus scientist of the GSC and teaches part-time at Simon Fraser University. With the GSC, he studied the stratigraphy of late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic rocks in the western Cordillera and did regional mapping in southwestern British Columbia. Beginning in the early 1970s, following the emergence of plate tectonic concepts, he has attempted to unravel and explain the tectonic evolution of the Cordillera.
