This is a cruising guide with a difference. Many boaters may not be aware of the opportunities for walks accessible from anchorages along the B.C. coast.

I was delighted with this book, which is part travel guide, part memoir, and completely entertaining throughout. With humour and astute observation, author Amanda Spottiswoode shares her adventures and mishaps cruising British Columbia's coastal waters with her partner and their two Jack Russell Terriers. The enclosed illustrated maps are absolutely fabulous. This is a book which will receive much battering when I take it island hopping with my own two dogs (hopefully soon!).

Great book! Well written and great Illustrations. Good for anyone who sails (or wants to sail) the BC coast, or as a souvenir. Book brings alive the experience of cruising with dogs.
