"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.


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.
