Editorial Reviews

American Reference Books Annual, Volume 36 - Virginia Fischer
Not your typical travel guide, the newly revised edition of Explore Canada, as the authors note in their introduction, is a "vehicle of ideas."... the perfect place to begin the adventure.
Library Journal
From a former editor and the current publisher of Explore, Canada's premier outdoor adventure magazine, comes a selection of the greatest destinations in Canada. This beautiful book, with over 250 color photos, has something for everyone, regardless of one's level of skill in the wild: from one-day trips near urban centers and family outings on nature trails for beginners to extended trips in remote wilderness areas for the expert. Special emphasis is placed upon hiking, kayaking, fishing, mountain biking, bird watching, skiing, and snowshoeing in more than 125 locations. Helpful icons indicate which activities are offered. This user-friendly guide has full-color maps with key visiting sites, sources of information for planning a trip, contacts and web sites, useful tips, plus ideas for equipment and clothing. Suggestions for further reading are in each section and at the end of the book. Highly recommended for all public libraries together with Canada: The Rough Guide (Penguin, 1999).--Michael W. Ellis, Ellenville P.L., NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
