In her third book of off-the-beaten-track explorations of western Canada, Liz Bryan travels scenic roads of British Columbia’s Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island. From country routes winding through the Fraser Valley to forest roads on Vancouver Island leading to coastal settlements such as Zeballos and Telegraph Cove, these journeys celebrate amazing landscapes and trace the early human history of these regions.
Since some of coastal BC’s interesting places are accessible only by boat, the book also takes readers on excursions along the fjord-riven coast to such places as Friendly Cove and Sechart Whaling Station.
From sandy bays to rocky headlands, quiet farmland to rugged forest, high mountains to rushing rivers, Liz Bryan captures the beauty of western British Columbia.
