5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Book on the Great Divide
Michael McCoy's Cycling the Great Divide: From Canada to Mexico on America's Premier Long Distance Mountain Bike Route is an essential item for those who are planning to bicycle or hike all of the Adventure Cycling route.

As McCoy notes in his well-written and informative introduction, this isn't an easy trek. Uneven terrain, adverse weather conditions, and a lack of water and essential services are often the norm.

As I found, having the book on hand better enabled me to plan ahead. For instance, my discovering that the climb over Indiana Pass would be long and difficult prompted me to begin my cycling day early, which in retrospect was fortuitious in that had I dilly-dallied, I would would have been caught in a late-afternoon snow-storm.

One the book's many strengths is that it includes a much-needed daily route synopsis. Though I am directionally challenged, I did not miss a single turn, not even in New Mexico, where many of the roads and trail heads are unmarked.

Sightseeing, points-of-interest, and photos have been included. I was often glad of this -- as I remarked to some onlookers, if McCoy hadn't pointed these things out to me, my trip would have been more of a slog than it was. For instance, if he hadn't mentioned that the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad passes through southern New Mexico, I would have missed it.

The historical information is also a plus in that it will appeal to both tenters and armchair readers. There was many an evening when (because the sun set early) I was glad I had this book on hand.

The material in this book also complements the Adventure Cycling maps. In retrospect, my trip was without incident, in part because I had both on hand.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good luck figuring out where to go without this book
If you are riding the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, you MUST have this book. This is an awesome route - Mike McCoy and the gang did a great job of researching it. One comment on the writing though -- when he uses the word 'steep', he means 'extremely steep', and when he says 'extremely steep', he means 'don't even try to ride your bike up this with a fully loaded bike'. A 'respectable climb' is really a lung-buster. Just expect everything to be a little harder than he makes it sound, and then you wont feel angry because it is not as easy as he makes it out to be. I think he must have either rode it without being fully loaded, or he is a very strong man! Anyhow, if you ride the Great Divide, you will have fun.. I guarantee it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have for riding the Great Divide
Whether you're planning on riding the whole thing at once or just just doing a section of it, I'd strongly recommend getting this book. My wife and I rode entire length in the summer of 2000, and we carried this book on the outside of our packs in a plastic bag at all times. We referred to it at least once every day. Like in any guide-book, there are a few confusing spots, but on the whole, the author (one of the original trail planners) has done a great job. He not only keeps you on the right path, he also points out various places you should visit, gives some historic perspective, and more. The book will surely make your experience more enjoyable. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Good basic history on the Chilkoot Pass
This book provides a pretty decent history of the Chilkoot Pass and its usages during the Klondike Gold Rush era. In fact most of the book geared around the historical part of the Chilkoot although if anyone wishes to real a great book, Pierre Berton's Klondike: the Life and Death of the Last Gold Rush is definitely superior.

But I was basically looking at the book as guide to hike the actual trail. Having read the lastest version of this book and having hiked the Chilkoot Pass several times by now, I found the trail guide to be somewhat dated and rather uninformative. The basic details seem to be there but it looked like many of the information came second handed.

Book remains a pretty good introductary effort but I would recommended further research before hiking the trail.

4-0 out of 5 stars A trail-ready, useful guide
Mr. Satterfield's guide to the Chilkoot has the ring of authenticity: a reader is convinced that he has been over every inch of the trail. It is well-written and thorough, and offers the right blend of historical minutia (though not so detailed as Pierre Berton's writing) and practical hiking advice. My own copy is well-worn from many Chilkoot miles. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful portrait of the Canadian landscape
Originally published in 1967 to celebrate the Centennial Year and Expo, this 1983 3rd edition is the latest.

This book divides up pictures of Canada into five regional chapters:

The Maritimes;
Into Quebec;
The Prairies;
British Columbia.

At first sight the book is a picture book with text pages limited to 10%. However the text pages and the captions to the pictures are so well written that they make the book a lasting treasure. Geographic and historic facts are beautifully mixed with descriptive images and phrases of poetic grace in brief but powerful captions to photographs that are so vast they often require more than one page.

Here is a caption for a picture of the Canadian Rockies:

The prairie begins its transformation into foothill and then to mountain once you have passed the 110th meridian of longitude. Farther south, in Colorado, the moment arrives some eight meridians of longitude farther east, the Canadian prairie being wider than the American because the Rockies swerve easterly south of the border. After the swells of the foothills come the waves of the rockies, grey, minaretted, the earth in tempest all the way to the Pacific. Yet, in the troughs of these waves are the absolute stillness of the valleys and the perfect reflection of the mighty rocks in placid, glacier-fed lakes.

What is lacking from the book are the people of Canada. Most of the pictures are landscapes with a few architectural photos added. Where there are people in the pictures they arepart of the background. The only portrait is one of the author at the end of the book. ... Read more

Book Description

This extraordinary classic has been variously acclaimed as one of the great books of adventure, travel, anthropology, and spiritual awakening. In 1938-39, a French nobleman spent fifteen months living among the Inuit. He is at first appalled by their way of life: eating rotten raw fish, sleeping with each others wives, ignoring schedules, and helping themselves to his possessions. But as de Poncins odyssey continues, he is transformed from Kabloona, The White Man, an uncomprehending outsider, to someone who finds himself living, for a few short months, as Inuk: a man, preeminently. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Magnificent
I recently bought it and read Kabloona in a weekend. The result was an incredibly valuable experience that has increased my awareness not only of Inuit life in the Netsilik area but of human behavior in general.Dde Poncins' prose is magnificent, even poetic. Numerous passages simply sing. Whether he is describing the describing bouts of cabin fever at the post in Gjoa Haven or celebrating the renewed vigor of villiage life that Springtime brings, De Poncins's eye for detail is refreshingly balanced and clear. What's more, Kabloona does not pretend to be an unbiased narrative. Instead, the author leads us through his physical and spiritual journey to show us how living with the Inuit has allowed him to become "a man preeminently." Certain passages seem somewhat romanticized, while others reveal the author's deeply-entrenched provincial values. The latter is evident when he describes an Inuit "pedarast" with a mixed sense of fascination and revulsion. But rather than hindering the narrative, such honesty and straightforwardness only enhances the humanity of this book. Kabloona is a thoroughly engrossing read that feeds into many areas of Inuit life, including myths, legends, and belief systems, as well as daily life and habitat.

5-0 out of 5 stars Some books stay with you for a lifetime
It's been years since I read "Kabloona" by gontran de poncins. I don't remember the specifics of the book (I'm going to read it again, soon). What I do remember is the lingering humanity of the people. The hard life they lived. The culture shock between my life and theirs. I remember the mirror they held before me, forcing me to question our idea of "progress," "civility," and "modern man". Books such as "Kabloona" and "Black Elk Speaks" by John G. Neihardt and "Mutant Message" by Marlo Morgan tells us more about our roots as a species than many of the great thinkers and philosphers who speak in the abstract and grandeur of modern man. You read a book like this and you must pause and reflect, look deeper into yourself and the rushing stream you were born into. Step back and look at life from a different perspective. It can be life-altering or at the very least a stunning revelation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Left on the ice
I read this book many, many years ago and have forgotten many of the details. I remember one, however. When the old one couldn't travel, they put her out on the ice and drove off. That is so relevant to our contemporary society and the discussions of social security and the elderly, caring for the disabled, etc. We can't leave the disadvantaged on the ice and drive off but must find some way to care for them.

5-0 out of 5 stars A privileged glimpse of Eskimo life
Gontran de Poncins's "Kabloona" is a classic of Arctic adventure, to be ranked alongside Farley Mowat's "People of the Deer," Harold Horwood's "White Eskimo" and parts of Peter Freuchen's "Vagrant Viking." A French aristocrat with a genuine yearning for adventure, de Poncins made his way to North America just prior to the last war. By stages, he managed to go right up into latter day Nunavut, some of the highest inhabited Arctic territory in Canada's north. Yet he didn't stop there. Putting himself into the hands of an Eskimo hunter who happened to be heading off onto the sea ice, he underwent an extraordinary odyssey lasting the winter through, in which he camped with the Eskimos in their winter igloos.

de Poncins takes us into the very private, very communal world of these northern people. Private because, for Europeans, entering this strangely illuminated landscape was even then almost an impossibility. de Poncins admits that his initial impression was overshadowed by the nausea which sprang immediately into being as he tried to deal with the strange mixture of smells in the igloos. Most Europeans would not pass that first test and many an estimate of Eskimo culture has been biased by just such an affront to a sensitive olfactory centre. Yet once he had passed this initial barrier, a process which he says took some time, he found himself in a world unlike any other he had experienced or imagined. It is into this ageless community that he takes us for a very privileged glimpse of the last of the true ice-dwellers.

Although a French national, de Poncins chose to remain in North America and he wrote his text about the Inuit in English, in collaboration with a friend. Not much is known about the author's life thereafter, as he did not publish much other work, but like G. B. Edwards's solitary yet wonderful book about life on Guernsey, "The Book of Ebenezer Le Page," this one book by de Poncins is a major accomplishment.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I've ever read!
I came upon this book PURELY by accident, and I now consider it one of the most fortuitous moments of my life! This is a fascinating and INCREDIBLY well-written account of a Frenchman's experiences living amidst the Inuit at the turn of the century--he is honest, hilarious, philosophical, and makes you feel like you're bumping along behind him on the sled across the tundra. I think it should be required reading of every single high school anthropology and sociology class. It is EXCELLENT! ... Read more

A Vancouver group of friends decided to start walking and hiking for pesonal challenge and a chance to enjoy the beautiful place they lived in. For a few months they limped along with few, outdated, and poorly described hiking guides. One of them read about Dawn Hanna's new book on the internet, purchased it, and I'd like to thank Dawn for providing the kind of guide we've been looking for.

This easy-to-use, fits-your-pocket gem provides well-described directions and levels of challenge, along with maps and climatic information, as well as wonderful legends & history; Dawn's passion for hiking the area is inspiring. This book is a got-to-take item for your hikes, only preceded by your water bottle. ... Read more

Your flight at Pittsburgh International Airport has been delayed for hours. You've been to the food court (twice) and you've just bought another magazine. Wouldn't it have been nice if you'd known that there was an in-airport health club with aerobics machines and a sauna? Well, if you had a copy of the aptly named Stuck at the Airport, Harriet Baskas's compilation of unexpected attractions and services at 54 airports around the world, you would. Arranged alphabetically, each entry lists dining, shopping, and sightseeing options as well as the best spots to nap, freshen up, and plug in your laptop. While some of the information is basic, most of it is surprisingly informative. San Jose Airport has an InMovie kiosk that rents films, Washington's Sea-Tac boasts artwork from Frank Stella and Robert Rauschenberg, and Heathrow has a golf studio offering lessons from pros. Need to keep the kiddies out of your hair? Check out the Children's Museum at O'Hare or the play area at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport with free Nintendo games. While it's true these discoveries won't get you to your destination any faster, they will make those dreaded delays a lot more bearable. --Jill Fergus ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good book!
This book is very good. Gave great information about airports. I loved this book while I was in Honolulu because I found so many things to do waiting for my 2 and 1/2 hour connection to Maui.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Practical
This book is highly practical. It is essentially a guidebook to many important airports and the services and amenities they offer for the delayed traveler. It is a unique and clever book. It is clearly written and easy to use. I hope to see more guides of this type from this lucent author.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stuck at the Airport : A Traveler's Survival Guide
Very disappointing and of little practical use. Where are the many important international airports?

5-0 out of 5 stars What a great idea!
How many times have I been waiting for the long over due flight at Christmas time to pick up family/friends at the airport and couldn't even find a quiet place to nap? My hit and miss approach to decent (non-cardboard like pizza) food when I'm traveling is over. Those endless hours staring at the clock are over. From now on I'm up and on the move to explore the places that Ms. Baskas has researched. I'm looking forward to my next layover to check out those airports. I love this book. A very clever idea.

5-0 out of 5 stars Got lemons - make a screwdriver
I half heard this lady on NPR's Morning Edition last weekend talking to Scott Simon about having a decent time at airports. Yeah right. Then I heard her again on the local NPR affiliate and I thought I either need whatever she's on or I gotta check out her book.

So I found it at my local bookstore's travel section, and must say it's a must for anyone who travels a bit or more by air . There are over 50 airports listed and according to the author, Harriet Baskas, you can actually get something out of an often unplanned and exasperating extended layover if you know the territory a little bit. Finding out for example that at many interminable terminals there are convenient and affordable places to workout beyond walking the wrong way on the ramps was a plus for me. I'm not much on shopping, but I like checking out local art scenes and if you know where to look, there's some stuff which might be more interesting than the foodcourt or the paperback you'll be reading on the plane, later. Phone numbers and websites for each port are included, too, which have even more handy and up to date information including maps to and from, current art exhibits, where the microbrewery's located, and so on. Let's face it - waiting stinks - but the positive attitude that Ms. Baskas has about making the best of it might rub off a little bit and that can't hurt. I liked it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Series! Colorful, Attractive, and Fun to Use
I've used a variety of guides for various trips, and I find that I now look for AAA guides more and more. Somehow I just use the AAA guides more often than the others even when they are all in my suitcase.

Just like other AAA guides, this one is colorful, attractive, and fun to use. Here are some reasons why I think it is better than other guides:

1) With lots of great photos, this guide gives you a really good idea of what things look like, which gives you a better idea of whether an attraction is one you want to see. This also makes the guide so attractive, that it is just fun to use!

2) While not as comprehensive as some other guides, the AAA guides point out the best sights and attractions, which are the things you want to see anyway. In the case of Vancouver, where there is SO much to see, this really helps you narrow down your list!

3) The spiral format makes the guide very easy to use as it lays flat or folds flat. (Nothing like trying to juggle an awkward guide while balancing a tote bag, carryon bag, and a purse! Ease of use counts!)

4) The guides contain fun activities like suggested walking tours along with fun facts about locations that you won't find in other guides. For example, the guide mentions that the very first ambulance in Victoria (I think it was 1919?) had as its first patient someone who was run down by the ambulance! You won't get that kind of info anywhere else! (And maybe you don't want to, but I like that kind of trivia!)

4-0 out of 5 stars The most popular itineraries, the most practical advice
This is not a comprehensive guidebook, but then, I don't want to pack a three pound book in my luggage when I know where I'm going and where I'm staying. The web makes it possible to pick your major destinations and hotels before going. This book suggests "must-see" attractions in limited time and a few off-the-beaten-path sights.If you are backpacking or going by the seat of your pants, I'd suggest the Lonely Planet Guide to BC or the Moon Handbook (edition previous to 2002). For couples or families who've done at least a little planning before leaving, the AAA guide is great.

4-0 out of 5 stars Covers the high spots
This is a good guidebook to tote around with you while touring Vancouver & Victoria.It has some good walking tours and listings of the "don't miss" sights.The reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it has very few hotel & dining recommendations, so you'll need another guidebook for the details on those. ...

The Mobil Travel Guide star ratings are a 45-year-old consumer advocacy concept originally developed following the introduction of the interstate highway system. The goal of the Guide is not to identify and rate every property in the country, but to recommend only the best in each category, ones that we would send our customers to. We look at the stars from a consumer's point of view, rating lodgings and restaurants across North America from the perspective of the "average traveler."The Guides feature new enhanced descriptions for 2004.Listings include lodgings, restaurants, attractions, and events in established travel destinations, as well as cities and towns on the way to established travel destinations.Our new easy-to-use format makes the Guides even more indispensable to travelers.Each regional guide is organized alphabetically by state, with introductory information about the state followed by city listings in alphabetical order. For each city, the guide lists sites and attractions, lodgings, and then restaurants. One of the features that sets the Mobil Travel Guide apart from its competitors is its proprietary Mobil star rating system.Forty-five plus years of publishing experience and the oldest non-biased rating system in North America make the Mobil Travel Guide series a must-have for travelers wanting up-to-date ratings of hotels and restaurants.

5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE THIS ROAD MAP
My husband and I think this is a great atlas for the United States and Canada. The neighboring states in the U.S. are green; and the state you are looking at is in white. This makes it very clear at a glance. Also, the Canadian portion of this Atlas is spectacular. The entire atlas is very easy to read. We really do like it and we are very glad we bought it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great new update
I love atlases and purchase each yearly edition of Rand McNally.Not much changes from year-to-year, but this edition represents a vast improvement on recent versions.First, they changed the color scheme.Neighboring states are now in olive green, instead of yellow as they were in recent editions.This change helps make it more obvious where borders are and the maps are clearer than before.In addition, national parks are now bright green, and stand out much better (in prior editions, they were outlined with pink and blended in with neighboring highways).Of course, each year, they update the road construction areas, which I have been impressed with their accuracy.This edition also includes a wonderful section highlighting some lesser known events and road trips around the country.Finally, there is a useful section that includes website addresses for state tourism offices.Even if you have a recent edition of this atlas, I highly recommend the 2002 version.Happy travelling!

5-0 out of 5 stars Indespensible Road Trip Reference

5-0 out of 5 stars Every car should have one
LOVE THIS ROAD ATLAS. The layout is great. The entire atlas is very easy to read. The map details were put to good use on our recent family trip and it passed our test. Very glad we bought it. If you're looking for dependable road maps, this is THE atlas to have in your car.

3-0 out of 5 stars Bland Rand McNally
While this road atlas is reliable, Rand McNally continues to show a lack of innovation in its graphics and layout. Both AMC (American Map Corporation) and Michelin have more visually appealing and ultimately more helpful road atlases.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's an atlas
Easy to use, up to date and accurate. What more could you want from a bunch of maps? ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Canadian Summer
Canadian Summer is about the Mitchells' first, well, Canadian Summer. They rent a cabin, go exploring, fall off a boat, go exploring, meet the Jolicoers, go exploring, meet Mr. Magic, go exploring, get lost, go exploring, lose their dog, go exploring, help Peter with his wounded leg, go exploring, stop a forest fire, go exploring, throw a party, go exploring, get a new house, go exploring, and did I forget to mention that they went exploring?

5-0 out of 5 stars Count Your Blessings
Canadian Summer is a book that makes you count your blessings.Hilda VanStockum has become our family's favorite author.Her writing is magical.She draws you into the story so you feel as if you are a part of it.

Because of a job transfer and limited resources, the Mitchell family was forced to move to a rustic cabin in the mountains.The cabin was far from a town and they had no transportation. VanStockum makes us love the Mitchell family.We can feel their humiliation as they come into church, the first morning in a new town, all bedraggled or dirty for various reasons.

This book is a glimpse into family life with all of its ups and downs.When the book is finished you will feel a loss, but then you will appreciate the relatively easy life we all live due to modern conveniences. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best guide for Yukon River between Whitehorse and Dawson
This is the third Yukon-related book I bought in preparation for a canoe trip between Carmacks and Dawson, and by far the best.Other books were either excessively anecdotal, or covered the Yukon in a way that Frommer's might cover Europe (hotels to stay at and such).This was focused on camping, hiking and canoeing, and what one might expect to see during the trip.Excellent book and well worth the small price.The only suggestion I have is the addition of a subtitle with the word "Yukon" in it, so it would come up on more searches for travel guides to the area. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars 21 Tours Geared for Discovery!
Invaluable information, even if you're not going to use the exact roads mentioned.

Use this one as the best planning source available and well worth the small investment.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not so good
My brother and I bought this book and used it to plan our biking trip in the Maritimes in 2001, but we weren't too happy with the route selection. Too many of the suggested routes were on main roads that were too busy with traffic. Bike touring is best when you get off the main roads, but this book doesn't help you find them. If you go to PEI, I do recommend that you bike on the clay roads that the book recommends. Don't follow the coastal roads--too much traffic. I like the Maritimes, in spite of this book! ...
