Book Description

May 15 2009
Located off the northwest coast of British Columbia, the mystical archipelago of Haida Gwaii is a place of unrivalled natural beauty and is rightly found on the must-see list of many travellers. Ancient homeland of the Haida people, this collection of about 150 islands, located 770 kilometres from Vancouver as the crow flies, has long attracted visitors seeking a truly unique travel experience. Following his recent trip to the Queen Charlotte Islands to visit the newly opened Haida Heritage Centre at Skidegate, Dennis Horwood has revised and updated his bestselling guidebook to the Charlottes for 2009. Applying the author's detailed knowledge of Haida Gwaii's geography, social history and natural attractions, this guide equips visitors with everything they need to know. 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-color 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.
