The first part of this guidebook outlines in some detail the general geological history of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park area. This is done by describing all the rock units in the sequence of their origin. From these descriptions is drawn something of the succession of events responsible for the rocks and the scenery there today. The second part of the book is a series of notes on what is to be seen at each of the viewpoints and roadside stops along the highway. [Suggest a different description.]
