Colour photos and clear maps of each area complement each description, with access routes and points, historical notes and interesting features to be aware of. Up-to-date references to sources of information will lead you to anything you need that is not covered in this guide. (Diana Mumford Wavelength)
Routes range from hour-long strolls to strenuous hikes. [Stone] also includes enough of the bay's history of logging, mining and fishing to make it an enjoyable read for armchair travellers. (Laszlo Buhasz The Globe and Mail 2008-05-03)
Sets a new standard for type of adventuring book. Stone...returns with one of the most approachable, useful and informative guides of this year or any other... Packed with historical and natural information accompanied by terrific maps and photographs, this is a book for both the armchair traveller and the intrepid hiker.... An essential buy. (Andrew Armitage Owen Sound Sun Time 2008-06-06)
Stone's new book sets itself a part for a few reasons. For one, it combines two of the most popular ways of getting around the bay, giving equal space to each.... The book also stands out for its photography [and] for the great historical details she brings to her descriptions of different outings. (Brad Holden Creemore Echo 2008-06-06)
