In Search of Canada's Ancient Heartland
Discover Manitoba's Geology, Paleontology and ArchaeologyBook - 2015
"Once, Manitoba lay beneath the sea. Once, it was crushed by the vast sheets of ice. Once, it was covered by one of the largest lakes the world has ever known. Once, it was the land of bounty for Canada's First Peoples. Today, clues to this ancient past are everywhere - in its plains and hills, along its lakes and rivers, and around its seacoast. For the first time, Manitoba's geological, paleontological and archaeological wonders are gathered in one place. Geologically and geographically, Manitoba is truly North America's heartland. A place of subtle and varied landscape, it was nearly two billion years in the making. But clues to its ancient past are everywhere––in its plains and hills, along its lakeshores and rivers, and around its seacoast. For the first time, the geological, paleontological and archaeological wonders of Manitoba are gathered in one place. With hundreds of colour photographs, maps and drawings, In Search of Canada’s Ancient Heartland presents an accessible, route-oriented approach for today’s time travellers, creating an indispensable guide to the forces that have shaped the spirit of the land."--from back cover.
