Canada Rocks: The Geologic Journey
Written by Nick Eyes and Andrew Miall.
Published by Fitzhenry & Whiteside Ltd., 2007.
|Canada Rocks is the fascinating story of how the Canadian
landmass evolved piece by piece from a long-lost continent some
four billion years ago into on the most spectacular and geologically
significant areas on Earth. For anyone curious about the geological history of
our country, this book is a marvelous portrait of what the authors describe as
the incredible 'construction project' that gave shape to the continents,
mountains, and oceans of planet Earth, and created the worlds second
largest country Canada.
Canada Rocks is the first book to present the entire sweep of Canadian geology to the general reader. It is profusely illustrated throughout with full-colour and black and white photographs, charts, maps, graphs and sketches. It also includes contemporary and classic Canadian art that captures the countrys extraordinary geological features and terrain. The book explores the country from north to south, and from east to west, exploring that incredible history through modern day sites and land shapes created in our distant past.
