It covers earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, landslides, avalanches, floods, climates, water supplies, vegetation, glaciation, rocks, fossils and the origin of the Greater Vancouver landscape. The book includes 150 colour photographs and drawings.

This book is an invaluable reference for the residents of the municipalities of Vancouver, West Vancouver, Lions Bay, North Vancouver, Richmond, Delta, Burnaby, New Westminster, Port Moody, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge, Mission, Harrison Hot Springs, Surrey, White Rock, Langley, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Squamish, Whistler, Gibsons, Sechelt, Powell River, Hope, and Pemberton.
