The Broughtons and Vancouver Island-- Kelsey Bay to Port HardyBook - 2016
Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones, whose classic guides on southern waters have made them the coast's favourite cruising writers, weigh in on the fabulous cruising territory of the Broughton Archipelago. Volume 5 includes all of the familiar features that make the Dreamspeaker series so popular. Numerous charts and aerial photos clearly delineate the safest routes north into Queen Charlotte Strait and the myriad islands surrounding it. Laurence's whimsical hand-drawn maps expose the dangers and attractions of key anchorages among the maze-like passages with matchless clarity. Anne's buoyant commentary draws on her own exhaustive research to evoke the mythic past of this overpowering "Kwakiutl Country" and provide a knowing guide to hidden treasures and not-to-be missed attractions. Laurence's fine scenic photography adds the crowning touch to one of the most handsome marine guides yet seen on this coast.
