Book Description

May 15 2009

Located off the northwest coast of British Columbia, the mystical archipelago of Haida Gwaii (previously known as the Queen Charlotte Islands) is a place of unrivalled natural beauty and is rightly found on the must-see list of many travellers. Drawing on his detailed knowledge of Haida Gwaii's geography, social history and natural attractions, Dennis Horwood has produced a guide to the region that equips visitors with everything they need to know.

Updated in 2009, following Dennis's trip to Haida Gwaii to visit the recently opened Haida Heritage Centre at Skidegate, the book includes extensive, detailed information on places to visit, things to do and places to stay, along with advice on planning your trip (including a suggested five-day itinerary). Also included are a history of the area, a guide to the islands' bird and animal life and 16 pages of full-colour photographs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'must' for any general lending library June 18 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Haida Gwaii: The Queen Charlotte Islands tells of Haida Gwaii, a 'must see' place on the lists of world travelers. It provides a fine outdoor guide to the islands in a third updated edition packed with maps, local history, and a suggested five-day itinerary that includes where to stay and what to see. Some sixteen pages of color photos enhance the information, making this a 'must' for any general lending library.
