Four Billion Years and Counting
Canada’s Geological Heritage
Four Billion Years and Counting is a book that will take you on an epic journey of discovery, revealing how Canada’s rocks, fossils, and landscapes have evolved over time. An ever-shifting drama featuring the building and dismantling of continents and the opening and closing of oceans, the story highlights the basic concepts about rocks, plate tectonics, geological time, and fossils, using Canadian examples. The book shows how these topics are foundations for economic and social issues―such as water, energy and mineral resources, landslides, the environment, and climate change―that impact our lives every day.
