Book Description Geoscience Publishing, Sherwood Park (AB, Canada), 2006. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: no dust jacket. First Edition. "Read about Alberta’s story, from the Big Bang to the present. Follow Alberta as it wanders from the equator to its present position over the past 750 million years. Alberta’s geological legacy has a major impact on our daily lives, from oil and gas, humble sand and gravel, and life-giving groundwater. And diamonds may yet be added to the semi-precious stone, ammolite, currently produced in the province. But this book is more than a record of Alberta’s fascinating past. It is a guide to where you can see some of the geological features mentioned in nine urban areas (Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Peace River, Grande Prairie, Athabasca, Red Deer, Calgary, Lethbridge, and Medicine Hat). There is a glossary of technical terms, a list of further reading, and a comprehensive index. This book could equally well serve as a coffee table centerpiece as an introductory lesson in geology. Overall, Alberta Beneath Our Feet is a well-written, very well illustrated text that, due to the use of non-technical language, is suited to a wide range of audiences, from amateur to academic. Best of all, the authors show us that the study of geology really is interesting and includes much more than deciphering the stratigraphy of local rock outcrops. This is a great book: an essential reference for anyone with a general interest in Alberta or a specific interest in geology. Winner of the Association of Earth Science Editors 2006 Award for Outstanding Publication in the Print Category. 248 pp., 322 colour photographs, 8 b/w photographs, 177 colour line diagrams, 14 tables, Weight 1.1 kg". book (hardcover).
