redleaf101 posted a topic in Fossil LiteratureThis has to be the book that opened the door to understanding the geology of home. The Last Billion Years is a 200+ pages put together by the Atlantic Geological Society (AGS) to detail every nuts and bolts of what was going on from the formation of Pangaea to its eventual splitting. I've read that book from front to cover and I keep going back to it for reference. The information for localities and the maps are very well layed out. The chapters of the book are seperated by Period. It goes back and forth all over the Maritimes but doesn't leave you dazed or confused. HA! Every geo topic is covered, from the fossils found, the mining industry, the processes that created wonders like the Bay of Fundy's tides, and so much more. Its a fairly sized book, but i still carry it around with me in my backpack. Lots of visuals, lots of maps, simply lots of cool information about rocks! This book can be found on nimbus publishing's website, amazon, and chapters/indigo. Cheers! Keenan
