Prince Edward Island Colourguide is the most comprehensive, up-to-date and colourful guide to this Maritime vacation destination.
"It is not only a guide to tourist attractions, but a miniature history of the Island done by twenty or so capable writers... Prince Edward Island -- A Colour Guide is an educational, useful and beautiful souvenir of 'The Garden of the Gulf'."
"The Prince Edward Island Colour Guidebook, like others in this series, is well designed and complements the government-produced maps. The photos (by Keith Vaughn) are stunning and the text (edited by Laurie Brinklow) was penned by several well known Islanders."
"...attractive guidebook... excellent colour photos of people, places, and activities... it is difficult to think of what might have been omitted.
Informative, readable, and well organized, this guidebook deserves five stars."
...the strength of these guides lies in the colour photography and heavily detailed copy in the Top Attractions, Neighbourhoods, and History sections.
"These are books to keep for reference or to give as presents... they're readable, informative and beautiful. I hope they eventually do one for each province and territory."
