"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 strength of these guides lies in the colour photography and heavily detailed copy in the Top Attractions, Neighbourhoods, and History sections.
