Updated and expanded, this revised edition includes: New sites of interest, including the Alberni Valley, Pacific Rim National Park and the Nanoose Peninsula; All new photographs of the areas discussed in the book; Additional information on the science of geology. This book reveals the Island in a whole new way as it points out fault lines, glacier erratics, fossils and other interesting natural formations. In a clear and straight-forward manner, author C.J. Yorath guides geologists and amateur naturalists alike to some of the most interesting geological sites on the southern island.
