Description

"

The bestselling exploration of British Columbia's geology, extensively updated in this 2011 edition.

This book tells the story of the province's geology and the history of its living creatures. The first edition of Geology of British Columbia, with its accessible but rigorous science, struck a chord with readers. Since it was first published, theories about plate tectonics and the geological history of BC have evolved, and this new edition reflects the current thinking.

This book also features updated content throughout, seven new maps, and a number of new photographs. A brand new appendix lists and describes key geological sites in British Columbia, adding a field-guide component to this informative book that will engage readers and compel them to go see these rocks for themselves.
