Good book but the binding fell apart within minutes of opening, now I need an elastic band to keep all the pages together!

I am very impressed with this little book! It provides facts about our wonderful lifestyle here on Vancouver Island in a very interesting way! I purchased an extra copy for a friend living in Australia who has also found our idyllic lifestyle most interesting. The book is well written and very informative.

HASH(0xa00b10d8) out of 5 stars A guide for tourists? Useless April 16 2013
By E. Pfeiffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an upcoming visitor I was seeking a book with "things to see and do" and "places to stay", and transportation networks, and such vital things as that.
This book contains none of that. Listings of artists, painters, histories, and such things are cute, but offer zero help in setting up plans for an exciting, adventured filled visit, and a well planned visit at that.
This is simply the wrong book if you are planning a trip to Vancouver Island.

HASH(0xa0918300) out of 5 stars Great little book. Jan. 4 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a great book to review before our trip to the island and was nice reading while on the island. It is presented in a nice way, you can just flip it open and you are exposed to tips, trivia, local folklore, place names - presented in boxes or not, but done in a way so that it is an appealing, easy read. The presentation of this book makes it an enjoyable book to reach for.

Very interesting book about the history of Vancouver Island. I visit the island often and found it neat to have on me while I traveled around.
