MP 8: Searching for the Origins of Haida Gwaii
by Atholl Sutherland Brown.
Atholl Sutherland Brown is a noted earth scientist, onetime fighter pilot, and sometime historian. In his four decades of field work, he fondly remembers Haida Gwaii as his most challenging and interesting research area. The book sparked the interest of Robert Williams, Deputy Chief Councillor, Haida Nation Skidegate Band Council, who has approved publication of the book and wrote its Foreword.
This historically significant book, written by someone who truly lived the life of an early geologist, provides long lasting insight into a region of Canada that was rarely seen by Europeans and more rarely still by those trained to recognize the areas geological significance. The book is important as it records both the geological history of Haida Gwaii and the personal memoirs of the unique geologist who mapped it.
