This is a non-technical book suitable for amateur geologists that has lots of pictures and diagrams. Most interesting to me was the discussion of the supercontinent before Pangaea and how its history is reflected in the rocks of Nova Scotia and the other maritime provinces of Canada.4/5(8).

The Maritimes Basin comprises a complex suite of upper Paleozoic strata that cover a large onshore and offshore area of eastern Canada.
