Albertans are not the only ones to benefit from their geologic past. Alberta is one of those rare regions where the history of an entire planet can be read with compelling precision. Recent abundant evidence from Alberta's landscape has contributed significantly to what we know about Earth's evolution. Drawing on such evidence, scientists at the world-renowned Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology offer a dramatic and vividly detailed chronicle of Earth history. With more than 135 maps, timelines, line drawings and full-colour illustrations, this easy-to-read volume starts with the Big Bang and ends with the modern era - everything readers need to know about the making of ancient Alberta and the extraordinary story of the land before us.
