Incomplete contents:
The geology of a continent is packed into the small islands of New Zealand, and nowhere within this country are the rocks more diverse, the geological structures more complex, or the landforms more spectacularly displayed than on the West Coast. Rocks, of many types and many ages, make up the Wests Coast. In this account of the geology they have been divided into 12 groups whose distribution is shown on the geological map (map 3 at back). The complicated pattern of distribution of the 12 rock groups reflects the complexity of the geological structure of the region
