Rezension

“Wherever you are in western Canada, this book has something to offer you, something to teach you about the landscapes you live among or are driving through on a summer adventure. … The book is filled with hundreds of maps, graphs, and photographs, which really help to bring the stories to the reader. … this book is a must-have for anyone who is enthusiastic about learning the stories behind the landscapes around them.” (Syd Cannings, bcbooklook.com, September, 2018)
