Praise for Rowlands's Structural Analysis and Synthesis 1e:
"Laboratory exercises using progressively more complicated geologic maps of mythical terrains have been a feature of my introductory structural geology course for years. I was, therefore, quite intrigued by Stephen Rowland's laboratory manual that takes this strategy a step further by progressively analysing a single geologic terrain...[I] appreciate the manual's clearly organized and balanced presentation of topics and its exercises that involved the progressive analysis and written synthesis of a single map area. The text has been popular with my students. I would recommend it to any instructor who emphasizes the interpretation of geologic maps in their introductory structural geology course." Journal of Structural Geology <!--end-->--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This widely used, highly readable introduction to structural analysis is specifically designed to support the laboratory work of undergraduates in structural geology courses. Throughout the book, a geologic map from a mythical site, the Bree Creek Quadrangle, is used to help students analyze various aspects of the geologic structures exposed within this quadrangle, and ultimately to combine these analyzes into a grand synthesis. Guided by studentsrsquo; and instructorsrsquo; suggestions, the authors have refined several exercises and added new ones for this third edition. In addition, every figure has been redrafted to improve clarity, and the Bree Creek Quadrangle map has been compiled onto a single fold-out sheet. An instructorrsquo;s manual is available on request from the publisher to assist the laboratory instructor in the use of the book.

It does have a lot of good information and is mostly easy to use. It helps you understand some concepts in your strucural class.
The map is just silly and some of it is wrong. But, once you learn where the mistakes are you can work through them in the right way.
Doesn't go over stereonets as well as I would have liked, but other than that, it was an ok lab manual.
Pencil doesn't work so well on the pages, use pen.
