The first printing of this book was sold out in a year. It was reprinted in 2009, with a number of worthwhile updates and corrections. Ben has been asked many times to write a book like this, and here it is: a guide to the geology you see along all the major highways of the Canadian Rockies, from the Waterton area to the far northern end of the Rockies. The Trans-Canada Highway, Icefields Parkway, Crowsnest and Yellowhead routes, the Rockies portion of the Alaska Highway and more are all covered in loving detail, with minimal geo-jargon. Over 500 illustrations, including many annotated photos with the various rock units, folds and faults marked. GPS waypoints, too! Endorsed by professionals and suitable for field courses.
