Product Description


"Spalding's unusual textual treatment is as layered and unexpected as the islands themselves. Coffee table books like this are usually read; this one you experience. Somehow the flavour has gone into the mix along with the ingredients; how did they do that? The people, the places and the history all visually unfold on the page. A stunning gift book or to grace your own coffee table."
-Cherie Thiessen, January Magazine (Praise for Enchanted Isles)

Format: Hardcover
David Spalding's informed and informative text is superbly embellished with the full color photography of Kevin Oke in "Enchanted Isles: The South Gulf Islands". Offering a true insider's perspective of the lovely southern British Columbia gulf islands found just off the coast between Victoria and Nanaimo, "Enchanted Isles" showcases their local wildlife, the incredible scenic beauty, and engaging history. Ideal for the armchair traveler and very highly recommended reading for the on-site tourist, "Enchanted Isles" truly and fully lives up to its title!
HASH(0xa2d871bc) out of 5 stars Great coffee table book for anyone who loves the water April 28 2013

I purchased this as a gift, but of course looked at it when it arrived. The Gulf Islands are one of God's gems, and our cruising throughout them have been some of our most enjoyable vacations. This book not only brings back memories but reminds us that we would have to cruise through the Gulf Islands every summer for the rest of our lives, and we still would not see all there is to see.
