Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, May 29, 1973- Landscape book sales peak OTTAWA (CP) Most people who think of the Geological Sur- vey of Canada associate it with rock samples and maps. They are right, up to a point. But this branch of the federal, energy, mines and resources de- partment is also a publisher. Its best-known volume is a book on prospecting that has sold close to big seller by Canadian standards. The Survey's latest effort- Miscellaneous Report ti- tled Focus on Canadian Land- scapes. It is mostly pictures of some of the most unusual land- scapes between Newfoundland and Vancouver Island and be- tween the Great Lakes and the North Pole. This collection about 170 black-and-white cuts shows _an intriguing variety of Canadian landforms in the main physio- graphic regions of the country Appalachian region, cov- ering the Atlantic provinces and the Gaspe; the St. Lawrence and Hudson Bay lowlands, the Canadian Shield, the Arctic, the interior plains and the western cordilleran or mountain region. The pictures range from Top- sail Head, Nfld., in 1874 to Baffin Island cliffs photographed in the 1900s, from drumlins in Alberta to Rees Creek's glaciated valley on Van- couver Island. The collection was put to- gether by B. G. Blackadar, the Geological Survey's chief scien- tific editor, with tfae help of L, E. Vincent, French editor. Dr. Blackadar says he dug them out of Survey files that date back 100 years. His aim is to satisfy a growing demand from the general public, whose interest in geology is growing. The pictures are doubtless (A interest to the professional geol- ogist and to those who teach the earth sciences. They should also appeal to the layman, who may not know an esker from a pingo but has sometimes picked up an unusual rock while on an after- noon stroll or has marvelled at the work of a Rocky Mountain glacier. when you see our low prices and fantastic guarantees at MINUTE MUFFLER INSTALLATIONS 3re) Ave. and 4th St. S.
