Review quote

One of Canada's top travel writers, and definitely one of our biggest personalities. * Globe and Mail * As the saying goes, the longest journey begins with a single step. Esrock's book just might inspire you to take it. * The Georgia Straight * The Great Canadian Bucket List is what the giant sequoia is to trees ... a big game changer. This weighty tome will be a definitive guide to any Canuck looking to experience great travel and adventure within the confines of our enormous country - the greatest place on earth! * Jon Montgomery, host of The Amazing Race Canada *
