"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. The geological history of Canada and the connections between geology and social issues such as climate change, hazards such as landslides and earthquakes, and other environmental factors. Contributions from some 100 specialists, richly illustrated with over 500 colour photographs and diagrams. An exploration for those who are intrigued by the landscape and the vital connection between ourselves and what lies beneath our feet"--Provided by publisher.
