The National Parks and Other Wild Places of CanadaBook - 2001
Canada offers vacationers and visitors some of the world's most beautiful scenery. This handsomely illustrated, fact-filled book takes readers on a words-and-pictures journey through the country's more than 30 national parks. Here is magnificent Banff in Alberta's Rocky Mountains, scenic St. Lawrence Islands in Ontario, the rugged and dramatic Cape Breton Highlands on the Nova Scotia coast -- and even Fathom Five National Marine Park in Georgian Bay, Ontario, a scuba diver's paradise. From the Arctic wilds to the beaches of Prince Edward Island, this volume presents a panorama of Canada's wonderful parks. The book features 320 breath-taking full-color photographs plus 38 park maps to complement a vividly descriptive text. Visitor information panels give facts on each park's points of access, accommodations, and recreational activities such as hiking, rafting, birdwatching, and fishing.
