Adventure Guide to Canada's Atlantic Provinces based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
A couple of happy wanderers, Tim and Barbara Rogers, have a stack of travel books to their credit as high as a totem pole. As co-authors and on their own, they have covered such widespread locales as their New England homestead, the Galapagos Islands, African safari parks, Latin America and the rivers and seas of Europe. Here, the peripatetic pair is back on the familiar turf of the first days of their marriage, when they explored the provinces on their honeymoon. ¿We¿ve traveled much of the world together,¿ writes the globetrotting duo in the book¿s introduction, ¿but no place on earth (as Canada¿s Atlantic Provinces) has constantly offered...so many adventures to broaden our repertoire of outdoor activities.¿ Meandering through New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland, kayaking around an iceberg, running exhilarating rapids, or simply watching a family of moose grazing along a lazy river, the authors joyfully record the great natural beauty of this unspoiled land. Jam-packed with useful information, the hefty volume (620 pages) has an easy-to-follow format with plenty of practical travel tips. Included are recommendations on where to stay and eat, plus detailed background on what to do and see, where and when. Whether you¿re looking for a cultural and eco-travel experience, wildlife-watching, fishing and camping sites, or merely a restful respite from a humdrum workaday world, the Rogers can guide you to a rewarding outdoors getaway.
