Geology of Nova Scotia makes the "Libraries 150" List of Books of Influence in Nova Scotia


The Geology of Nova Scotia Field Guide: Touring Through Time at 48 Scenic Sites, co-authored by Martha Hickman Hild and Acadia's Sandra M. Barr, made the list of 150 Books of Influence compiled by the Nova Scotia Library Association and Nova Scotia's nine regional public library systems in honour of Canada's 150th birthday. The titles on the list are those books that have captured Nova Scotians' hearts and minds; books that tell Nova Scotia's stories and inspire its citizens. Canada's 150th Anniversary is a perfect opportunity to examine and consider those books which reflect our current state as a people and province, as well as books that mark our progress over the decades since Confederation. Also on the list is "The Last Billion Years", published by the Atlantic Geoscience Society. It is good to see geology in the public eye in a positive way, not just natural disasters!
