Geology of Southern Vancouver Island Revised Edition

Vancouver Island’s peaceful, bucolic nature betrays little of its violent natural history, but in Geology of Southern Vancouver Island fascinating events in the turbulent geological history and architecture of the Island are revealed.

Book Description

“This book is tailor-made for the keen amateur geologist wishing to learn more about geology and apply it to a particular landscape with which he or she is familiar or can readily relate to.”
-Jeremy McCall, BC Naturalist


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.

Geology of Southern Vancouver Island 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.
