Ben Gadd 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 and more are all covered in loving detail, with minimal geo-jargon.
There are over 500 illustrations including many annotated photos with the various rock units, folds and faults marked. GPS waypoints too!
