"You are not going to want to drive anywhere in southern BC without it! Fabulous content-rich in roadside detail along with Jim Monger's big-picture context." —Jim Ryan, newsletter of the Cordilleran Section of the Geological Association of Canada

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.
