Since Mountain Press started the Roadside Geology series forty years ago, southern Californians have been waiting for an RG of their own. During those four decades-which were punctuated by jarring earthquakes and landslides-geologists continued to unravel the complexity of the Golden State, where some of the most dramatic and diverse geology in the world erupts, crashes, and collides. With dazzling color maps, diagrams, and photographs, Roadside Geology of Southern California takes advantage of this newfound knowledge, combining the latest science with accessible stories about the rocks and landscapes visible from winding two-lane byways as well as from the region's vast network of highways.

British Columbia was built by some 500 million years of geologic discord along the western margin of the North American tectonic plate. That turmoil continues today, as the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate inches beneath Vancouver Island, triggering earthquakes and generating the magma that feeds the volcanoes of the Cascades. This book explains the province's geologic history in simple terms, covering southern British Columbia from the northern tip of Vancouver Island to the BC-Alberta border. Thirty-one descriptive road guides, complete with maps, photographs and diagrams, help you locate and interpret the rocks and landforms visible from the provinces 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, and drive across a slow-moving earthflow that has played havoc with roads since the gold-rush days. The book a sense of the geology's importance to everyone who lives in and passes through the province.
