Roadside Geology of Southern British Columbia explains the province's tumultuous geologic history in simple terms. Thirty-one descriptive road guides, complete with maps, photographs, and diagrams, help you locate and interpret the rocks and landforms visible from the province's highways and ferry routes. Discover a lava flow that chilled beneath ice. Learn how Ripple Rock claimed 24 ships before engineers finally blew it up. Drive across a slow-moving earthflow that has played havoc with roads since the gold-rush days. This book covers the geological features in the lower third of British Columbia--from just north of 100 Mile House down to the Canada-United States border.
