Description

From the mountain meadows of Manning Provincial Park in southern British Columbia and the misty rainforests of Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve in the Queen Charlotte Islands to polar-bear tours on the shores of Hudson Bay and fossil digs in Alberta's Dinosaur Provincial Park, this lavishly photographed guide directs travelers to the best natural sites in western Canada (British Columbia, Yukon Territory, Alberta, Northwest Territories, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and western Nunavut). In introduces the reader to both renowned national parks and lesser-known provincial parks, wildlife management areas, provincial forests, wilderness rivers, and backcountry lodges. Author Bob Devine and photographer Raymond Gehman are experts in the natural history of western Canada; their evocative words and images explain why the land looks the way it does, what sort of plants and animals you may spot, and which outdoor activities to undertake. In-depth sidebars examine facets of the land (mountain caribou, a coastal hot spring, the northern lights) most likely to intrigue visitors.
Guided hikes and scenic drives as well as tips on where to canoe, kayak, take ferry cruises, spot wildlife, beachcomb, camp, and watch birds are major components.
