    Book Description

    Unpretentious, sophisticated, and always appetizing advice from a celebrated authority

    For more than thirty years, R. W. Apple Jr. has roamed the United States as an eyewitness to history. Here, in Apple's America, his robust enthusiasm for the food and culture of New England, the South and West, the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, and his native Middle West carries him to forty great cities, where he proves to be our ideal guide--amused and amusing, knowledgeable, indefatigable, and endlessly curious.

    From Boston to Honolulu, from Montreal to Las Vegas, Cincinnati to Seattle, Johnny Apple explores the landmarks, architecture, business, culture, and, of course, the food and beverages of his favorite urban communities. Capturing the tone and style of American city life to perfection, he shows us the hidden treasures, the best buildings, the famous landmarks, the historical aura, and the present-day realities that make each city so memorable. And in each he recommends several places to stay, numerous places to eat, and sites or activities you shouldn't miss. No traveler in the United States will want to do without his recommendations.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Travel Companion
    Apple's America is a God-send for the traveler who is in town for just a day or two but really wants to learn what makes each city tick. No more excuses for just "grabbing dinner" or just passing through on business. I could spend days exploring each city but with this book I've been able to learn more about cities than in years of visiting for business. I've been sending this book to friends of mine to take on business trips and vacation. I prefer Apple's America to any guide out there. ... Read more

    Pound for pound and inch for inch, The Milepostis the most valuable piece of luggage you could include on a trip to Alaska and northwestern Canada, whether you're going by plane, car, bus, or bicycle.No wonder they're celebrating their fiftieth anniversary as the "Bible of North Country Travel." This is not a fluff and nonsense production, because there's serious driving to cover when you're heading to Anchorage or Denali Park, and you need to know things, like what the major highways and roads contain, mile-by-mile, where there are gas stations, campgrounds, fishing, lodging, and food, what the geography is like and what road conditions to expect. There's even some information on the history of the lands and communities, and what attractions are nearby. The maps are exceptional and the abundance of information remarkable, making this the most irreplaceable of guides for a trip up north. --Stephanie Gold ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars If touring Alaska by car,put this book in the passenger seat
    I go up to Alaska every few years. And every time I go, I get the most recent copy. If you need to find a gas station or a place to stay in Alaska, its in here. If you are going to Denali National Park, get "Discovering Denali". Another good travel guide to bring along is "Alaska's Best Places"

    5-0 out of 5 stars Milepost is a must have
    I read other reviews that said you could find the same or better info from local info centers. Maybe the same, but not better and not all in one spot. The Milepost is useful because you can see what iscoming BEFORE you get there, not after... when you locate a tourist center and hope it is open. Very accurate from scenic overlooks, food & fuel, even construction locations. A good value especially buying well below Alaska local list from Amazon.

    We just came back from 2000 miles of RVing in Alaska and were very pleased with the Milepost. I just wish we had bought it from Amazon ahead of time!

    Don't think twice, buy it before you go! Of course, if you aren't driving and just sitting on a tour bus spend your money on the Lonely Planet guide instead.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An absolute necessity for driving in Alaska
    We recently returned from 18 days in Alaska.We drove on the Parks Highway, the Glenn Highway, the Richardson Highway, the Steese Highway, the Elliot Highway, the Fishook-Willow Road, the Alaska Highway, the South Klondike Highway, and the entire road system around Juneau and Douglas Island.The Milepost covered all of the roads and we always knew where the next turnout was.The local advertising is indispensable (Eat at Fast Eddy's in Tok.)

    5-0 out of 5 stars The miles fly by!
    There are lots of miles of roads in AK, and driving them can be a bit boring.Unless you have the milepost to guide you.There are interesting things happening all along the roadside, and a long road trip will whiz by when you are aware of what you are seeing, or can anticipate what is coming up around the bend.

    Well worth the investment.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Useful but tedious
    I found the Milepost to be better than having no reference material at all (the maps are the most useful feature).Its best use is in finding RV parks and gas stations but the method of reporting services available at the RV parks is somewhat hit or miss and is not always accurate or reported in any sort of consistent format -- except on the keycodes on the maps.One key piece of information that is only grudgingly made available are the months that the parks are actually open for customers. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars I Really Enjoyed This Guide
    I've made the trip from the U.S. to Panama by car four times. Each trip has been different and a real adventure. Although this guide should be updated it contains some good tips and many anecdotes. One of the best parts is where others share their experiences while making the journey. I also liked all of the essential Spanish vocabulary the book contains to help non-Spanish speakers in case they get in a jam. The part about border crossings is also helpful. They can be a real drag and very frustrating. This book helps prepare people for them.
    I really wish the publisher would come out with a newer edition. I'plan to contact them and see if they'll let me share my experieces in the next edition. In short, if you plan to make the trip to any Central American country this book can help you.

    3-0 out of 5 stars If you plan to take the drive~*the book is worth buying~*
    my husband and i took the drive from California all the way down to Costa Rica and this book was definitely helpful, in retrospect. i agree it needs to be updated, and honestly, it is not a MAJOR source of all the info you will need, but it will help a lot~if nothing else, it provides you with an idea of what lies ahead. the best parts about this book, we felt, were the table that shows the distances and times expected between each major town, and the page of spanish words and phrases on the road. it definitely does not assist much with budget travelers~but hey, if you are a budget traveler and you plan to make it all the way down there, we did it on a shoestring budget, w/o help from the book on finding places to stay, and we were fine! we plan to take the drive again in 2002, and we will create our own updated version of what life is like and what to actually expect along the way. overall, if you have never taken this drive~i definitely recommend getting all the info you can~including this book.

    3-0 out of 5 stars The Only Book on the Subject
    Since this guide is better than nothing we used it on our trip by car to Panama. My friend and I found it helpful in travelling through Central America. There are some parts which need to be updated.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a MUST read book!
    Years ago, as a child, I traveled with my family to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. It was one of the best memories I have of my childhood. Flash forward to 30+ years later, I have since learned that my maternal grandfather was born and raised in Nova Scotia while doing my family tree; additionally, I have a distant cousin, whom I used to play with, now married and living in Nova Scotia. This summer I plan to visit Nova Scotia for the first time since my childhood. I bought this particular book over Fromer's and other similar travel book because this series of Eyewitness Travel Guides is THE BEST ever! It is very informative and up-to-date, something that other travel books lag on. Plus the stunningly beautiful photos in this book and detailed diagrams and maps of cultural and historical places really gives you a bird's eye view before you even get there! This book also provides information on the country of Canada as well as NS and PEI. I plan to use this book again and again for future travels to Canada. The best part of the book is the last section you should read first...the Survivor's Guide. It gives you practical information such as entry requirements, cash and currency, driving laws, emergency/medical information should you need it, and much more! DK Eyewitness writers constantly reviews and updates the information in this book! I highly recommend readers buy this book and pass it on to your family and friends! P.S. My NS cousin says this book is right on the money!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I Know I am Canadian ! - These Are Excellent Travel Books
    These are outstanding travel books. I first was introduced to them in Sweden, and I have beeen hooked on them since. I bought the Canadian version for friends - since I live here.

    The Trip: I would suggest that you buy one or two books before coming. Buy this book plus maybe a book of maps or similar. Book planes and trains in advance, and some accomodations. But once you are here you can reserve the balance of your rooms as you go. Some areas such as Ottawa are notorious for being difficult to book a room so book there in advance if possible. Toronto has lots of restaurants and good theatre and comedy. Montreal - atmoshere and dining. Usually it is not hard to get a room or bus or train tickets. But trans Canada travel book ahead.

    The Book: Getting back to the book, the main feature that differentiates these books from its competitors such as Lonely Planet Series are the excellent photographs. The photos jump off the pages all bright color, just excellent. Plus the book has cutaway views of interesting places, lots of notes on culture, accomodations, history, politics, maps, places to see, restaurants, etc. Also it has history time lines that show the historical milestones referencing people, politics and regions.

    The great graphics gives a better idea - before visiting - than say the Lonely Planet series or a similar series which are normally an equivalent book or even bigger but have more text and less pictures. Buy before you make your travel plans. Buy extra maps.

    I love this series of maps. Small and plastic-coated, they tuck into a purse or backpack easily, don't tear or get wrinkled, and they are colorful and attractive. This particular map is very small and yet very easy to read, and gives you everything you need to know about Vancouver, Stanley Park, University of British Columbia campus, downtown Vancouver, the Vancouver area, and even downtown Victoria, which is across the channel on Vancouver Island. Tourist spots are all noted, along with major hotels. It really is the best way to see a city! I get one for every city I go to. ... Read more

    "Michael Ondaatje is here at his agile and evocative best . . . Brightly colored, sweet and painful, bloody-midned and otherworldly, [Running in the Family] achieves the status of legend."
    -Margaret Atwood

    In the late 1970s, Michael Ondaatje returned to his native island of Sri Lanka.Recording his journey through he druglike heat and intoxicating fragrances of the "pendant off the ear of India", Ondaatje simultaneously retraces the baroque mythology of his Dutch-Ceylonese family.It is a story of broken engagements and drunken suicide attempts, of parties where exquisitely dressed couples tango in the jungle, a tale whose actors pursue lives of Baudelairean excess with impeccable decorum.

    Lyrical and witty, tragic and deliriously romantic, Running in the family is an inspired marriage of travel narrative andfamily memoir by one of our most eloquent and poetic writers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars magical realist sensual family saga
    Running in the Family is a wonderful autobiography, in the magical-realist, crazy-family-saga vein of Garcia-Marquez or Rushdie. It's funny, poetic, sensual, moving and strongly evocative of Sri Lanka, the author's eccentric family, and the sultry damp tropical greenness. It took me until the middle of the book to really get into it, but then i couldn't stop, and i had to re-read the beginning again; there's something about the events and the time-cycle he's describing that throws you right into the middle of things at the beginning, and becomes more understandable and linear from the middle of the book onwards. But it's well worth any initial confusion, and if you loved the English Patient, this book is a must

    5-0 out of 5 stars For Those Who did not love "Anil's Ghost"
    No author can make every book work. It's unfair to expect that. This is the first Ondaajate book I read, make that: devoured. I loved the non-linearity, the depth of love for his home country, the characters gathering and separating. I write this review because I believe strongly that Anil's Ghost is the companion piece to "Running in the Family" and less well-done, less artful. But this book more than makes up for the flaws in the later book. Perhaps the kleig lights of fame are too hot for a writer to work at his best. I say that because the author of this book is so gifted and has so much to evoke that I expect he will do so again, maybe not in his beloved, insane Sri Lanka, or maybe back there again. So, in closing, If you despaired of loving "Anil's Ghost" read this and you're efforts will be fully redeemed.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pictures of yesterday
    Considering that this is in fact an autobiograpy, one can not judge it's contents. After all, you can not judge ones life, either you like it or not in a sense of discussing literature. But, what you can discuss is the manner in which that biography is written. Ondaatje present's life of his family trough generations who lived on Ceilon (Shri Lanka), in a series of random images, which are more like picture, than prose. Many times he stops to grasp certain individual and present his little history, his life, which than influenced the rest of the family in some perverse way. When reading this book, experienced reader will find such compositions that corresponds in that what crtics call 'modern', others will find interesting and compelling story, which never grows in boredom, with fluent narrative style that keeps ones eyes fixed on pages long after the lights went out.
    Comparing the Ondaatje with other authors of the modern world,
    Ondaatje lacks the one thing that he "must" have when presenting himself in a way he does. By focusing himself merely on a problems of his own, of a personal character in every (which, of course, includes this one)book, he voluntarily forgets that there is other life, other world going around him. When tending to write intelectual prose, one should, at least in one way, give some focus on that matter too.
    But, when all this comes to conclusion, if you like (auto)biograhies - buy this one, if you don't, skip it. It's simple as that...

    5-0 out of 5 stars delicious
    both the style and the subject of this novel are easy and enjoyable to absorb. mostly a memoir including some letters and poems. it has a great sense of humor and is full of passionate, and most importantly interesting accounts of the definatly NOT run of the mill family history Ondaatje has.

    5-0 out of 5 stars What a family!
    This book was just so enjoyable and hilarious but yet so beautifully written. From the beginning till the end Ondaatje opens up to the reader (in a journal entry) this magical and beautiful world. Onddatje's adroitness to include the reader right there in the conversations he has with various family member will bring you to tears. His captivating sytle takes the reader back in time with him trhough such tear jerking and amusing experiences.

    This memoir will give you a deatiled verbalization of each city and place in Ceylon, so that the reader has a clear picture of what it was like to actually be there. His simple structure of setting things up, will make you feel the temperature and jungle like atmosphere by his entailed descriptions.

    Ondaatje reminds me of Stein in certain passages because of how he holds nothing back from the reader. It's as though he's sitting down and talking to you while showing photographs and stories of his exuberant and loud family. ... Read more

    Book Description

    Two Canadian sisters inherit beachfront property in Mexico and take off on an adventure to claim their inheritance. They travel opulently by cruise ship to Ensenada and survive a rocky trip through Baja California , only to be shocked when they arrive in San Felipe. Their beachfront property is, indeed, on the beach, but the "structure" is a cement slab and the Airstream trailer their uncle parked on the property in the early 1960s! With the help of a few locals, the Canadian cuties figure out what to do with their less-than-desirable legacy. The true gift, they find, is that they are reconnected as sisters and discover that everything that happened along the way was part of God's plan. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Among Seven Similar Guides
    Picking a Travel Book on Canada

    If you visit a large bookstore in Canada where I live one can find a broad selection of Canada travel books, all written in English. There are two types of books: the general guides (described here) and then there are other guides on specific topics such as provinces (example Quebec), cities, parks, restaurants, mountain regions such as Banff/Lake Louise guide, etc.

    If you want information on hiking or similar and are new to Canada then buy two books, i.e.: a general guide and then say if you are going to Banff or Vancouver or Toronto - then buy a second book on just that area, city or park. Otherwise you will be disappointed. General country guides cannot cover a 5000 km wide country (3500 miles) plus 10 provinces and all the numerous parks, cities, rivers, lodgings, restaurants, etc plus all the other activities in one guide. It is a mistake to expect that fine detail in one of these books.

    So these books are general introductory books and good for general trip planning - but not every detail. I did a bit of research and have compared and ranked 7 of the current best known guides. Many of these publishers such as Fodors have other guides for hiking, parks, restaurants, etc. In any case these 7 books cover all of Canada, they have maps, cover the major cities, have subway or similar guides, some restaurant and lodging information, and cover some of the politics, history, attractions such as parks, lakes, etc. and industries in each region.I rank those guides higher that have everything, i.e.: good text descriptions combined with good maps, sketches, photos, trip planners, etc. I am less concerned about small details such as particular hotel and its nightly rate. For that check the internet. None of the books are bad.

    Coincidentally all of these books cost approximately $17., and vary in size from 400 to 1136 pages. Here are the rankings.

    1ST Place - Ranked Best Overall.

    1. Lonely Planet Canada, 992 pages, 1.4 x 7.7 x 5", sales rank on Amazon.com 20,196, published October 2002. This book is rich in text, maps, and high quality color photos. Covers most of the country with lots of information. Best overall value.

    2nd Place - Tied For Second

    2. Michelin Green Guide Canada, 461 pages, 0.8 x 9.4 x 4.4", sales rank on Amazon.com 626,192, published June 1, 2003. This is a well made book with lots of maps and photos.Short but well written. Slim and best made and weather resistant covers - to some degree.

    3. Canada - Eyewitness Travel Guide, 432 pages, 0.8 x 8.7 x 5.2', sales rank on Amazon.com 14,893, published September 2003. Has the best photographs of any guide, acts as a souvenir instead of taking photos yourself. Stunning aerial photograph of Niagara Falls plus many more. Excellent history time lines and cut away photographs. I put it second choice only because it is just 432 pages. Best photos and other visuals. If I was in Canada just for a short trip or planning a trip - this would be my first choice.

    4. Baedeker's Canada, 640 pages, 1.3 x 7.6 x 4.9", sales rank on Amazon.com 792,753, published December 1, 1999. This book is similar to Lonely Planet, but 1/3 smaller and now a bit dated. Since all he books listed here cost $17, I prefer the bigger and more up to date Lonely Planet or the Michelin Guide or Eyewitness Travel with better photos.

    5. Fodor's See It Canada, 1st Edition, 400 pages, 0.8 x 9.1 x 5.3", Amazon.com sales rank 1,703,104, published June 1, 2004. Most recent available guide in this group (see 6 below), good maps and photos, large font with a slight cartoon feel and shortest of the group. Do not confuse with Fodor's 1000 page food and lodging guide.

    3rd Place

    6. Rough Guide Canada 5th Edition, 1136 pages, 1.4 x 7.8 x 5.1", Amazon.com sales rank 991,800, published June 22, 2004. Most text only information for the dollar. Lots of information and descriptions. Does not convey the scenic grandeur - no photos to speak of, but it has maps. I prefer the Lonely Planet because it has text plus good photos.

    4th Place

    7. Frommer's Canada ( Frommer's Complete), 828 pages, 1.6 x 8.6 x 5.1", Amazon.com sales rank 1,038,793, published May 17, 2004. Frommer has a number of books - this is the complete Canada guide. In any case it is similar to #6, the Rough Guide, but shorter.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect
    I used the lonely planet Canada for travelling from the West Coast to the East Coast.In most places I found that it gave me all the information that I needed on hostels and places to eat.

    The section on the Canadain Rockies was not so good, and an extra guide book is recommened.

    On the negative side of this book is that some of the maps are incorrect and I found myself walking the wrong way.

    I don't have anything to compare the book to, but it did the job for me.

    1-0 out of 5 stars A Waste of Money
    This book is a lot of things, and none of them good. The authors really don't know the country very well, or have failed to visit many of the palces they recommend. I buy a guidebook to learn what's good and what's not. But this book doesn't give that. It just lists the same information anyone can find on the internet or in tourist brochures. I want to know if the rooms are big, if they're clean, where they are in relation to local attractions. None of this information is given.

    I used this book to seach out a hotel near Vancouver Airport, which was my arrival point in Canada. The text says that the Holiday Inn is "beside Highway 99.", with no indication where along this 30 mile long road it is.

    When the author does add a description, it does nothing to inform. Or it's incorrect. My travels took me to Lake Louise. There are lots of good hiking guides to this region, but I figured the outlines in this book would get me going. I hiked 2 trails the author suggested. The descriptions of both were so wildly inaccurate as to be dangerous. The author thinks there is a teahouse at Mirror Lake (never, I was told). He or she highly recommends hiking the "popular" trail between Moraine Lake and Lake Louise when in fact one doesn't even exist!

    The Lonely Planet description of Mt. Assiniboine Park sounded good, so I followed their lead which said "a gravel road takes you close to the park through the ski resort of Sunshine Village." I followed my map to Sunshine Village to be told the gravel road has never ever been open to the public.

    The only redeeming feature of this book is that when the author hasn't bothered to visit a place, he or she admits it in a subtle way: In Lake Louise, the extent of recommendations for places to dine is "Eat at your hotel." (lots of great places here for all budgets including the best bakery I found in a month on the road). In Nelson readers are encouraged to "ask at the visitor center" for somewhere to stay. These type of entries make me doubt whether they even bothered to travel to many places they write about, let alone do any actual research.

    This book has turned me off a guidebook series I have used for years. Never again.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing
    The new edition of this book fails to deliver in every aspect. I've used Lonely Planet books in the past, and they've proved to be reliable and useful, but not this one. I live in Banff, and so the observations are from this region.

    Firstly, the "new" edition is terribly out of date. I purchased it after seeing the publication date was October 2002. It's accepted and understandable that things change, but there is information that was wrong well over a year before the publication date. A hostel that burnt down in 2000 (Hilda Creek, page 701), and reference to Banff and Jasper as "townsites" (Banff was incorporated in 1991, Jasper in 2001) are examples.

    The description of Banff is laughable. There is no possible way anyone could describe the town as a "small, alpine-style village that consists of essentially one main street" (page 686), as this book does. The following history section doesn't get better: "The Bow River forms a class-distinctive boundary that is still evident today." In the first instance, the side of the river that LP tells us "caters to the wealthy crowd" comprises mainly of subsidized housing. And "Many people complain that the townsite is too crowded and argue that more hotels and streets should be built." Aside from the fact a 12 year old could have written the sentence, it's just simply not correct. In an effort to include an environmental slant, the authors have touched on current issues. Readers are informed that a convention center at Lake Louise is controversial because it's "in grizzly bear habitat-good goin' guys" (page 696). Bad goin' I say-it's controversial due to water issues, not bears.

    The book is riddled with inaccuacies. Not information that is out of date, but straightforward mistakes. Page 688 talks of canoe rentals at Banff's Central Park. There has never been a canoe rental place here. How could a trained writer even imagine there was? Golden is "just outside the park" (page 692) No, it's over an hour's drive away along a treacherous road. There are literally dozens of similar mistakes in just the few pages on Banff. This is also reflected in the maps: Banff has no "Mamoth St." (page 687). As all Banff streets are named for animals, I guess they meant "mammoth" street, but there is no street of this name either. The mapmakers can't even correctly spell an incorrect name, or something along those lines anyway.

    Most surprising for me, the good, solid travel information these books were once renowned for has been replaced by useless, fluffy text that serves no purpose at all. For example, the restaurants listed are not recommendations as such, but simply listings. And where there is a description it does little to inform. Four lines are used to explain the source of the name of an Irish pub (page 694) that has absolutely no relevance to Banff or the mountains, including that the original Guinness Brewery is still open and that it was "founded by 34 year old Arthur Guinness in 1759." The next listing is for Bruno's, named for one of Banff's most famous and respected mountain men. This name isn't explained, just that the restaurant has a "wide-ranging menu." There is an excellent reason why renting a vehicle in Banff, as opposed to Calgary or Canmore, is a bad choice (no unlimited mileage is offered, even by the majors), yet, this important and useful information isn't included (page 696).

    My original purpose of buying this book was for travel around my own country, not so much to rely on every word in print but to get a feeling as how Canada is portrayed by these books. The litany of inaccuracies and uselessness seems to continue beyond the Rockies section. On page 34 readers are told brown bears are "actually a black bear but brown in color." I just wish I could ask the author how he came up with this unique theory.

    I imagine picking a Lonely Planet book as the guide of choice is habit more than anything for many travelers. It's reflected in the attitude of those I meet on the road and the reviews I see here at Amazon. It seems somehow ironic that Lonely Planet has evolved from the likes of an Africa book I relied on for every word in the 80s, written by a guy whose biography had him living in a hut brewing mango wine somewhere I can't recall, to this worthless tome that relies on name rather than content to generate sales.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The Best Buy in Candian Guides.
    Lightbody, Huhti and Ver Berkmoes have produced the definitive travel guide on Canada.Up-front, this review is based on my trips to B.C. and Nova Scotia. To say that Canada is vast is an understatement, but, if these,to polarized Canadian provinces,are typical of the rest of the guide,this is a "must have" purchase.

    Lightbody, Huhti and Ver Berkmoes' writing is both engaging and descriptive. "Lonely Planet Canada" has a solid introduction section that covers Norway's history, government, economy, ecology, climate etc.An informative practical travel section and,most important, a reliable and up-to-date listing of recommendations that each of the contributors has checked out (lodging, restaurants, entertainment, places to see and things to do).At the start of each section is a regional map, more maps, and a list of highlights or "must see" for that region.Great!

    In my "must have" list to qualify a guide as "excellent", are easy to read maps.This book has the best maps found in a Canada travel guide.High marks go to the city maps that help the reader by numerically locating the recommended restaurants and accommodations on the maps.

    Thesuperb information and recommendations are reliable and though the publication date is 1999 (thus the information is pre '99), I did find some restaurants and inns closed or sold.As a whole, accommodations prices have increased an average of 15% to 20%.

    A weak area, which I am sure will be corrected in the next edition, is the sparse use of email/web site addresses (Halifax, N.S. had no addresses out of the 20 accommodations listings). As computer users know, website and email addresses are very helpful, especially for hotel quotes and reservations.

    Lonely Planet Canada is comprehensive enough to have even if you are just visiting one province and, with its excellent introduction and reliable accommodations and restaurants recommendations, you find that this may be the best buy in Canada Guides. Strongly recommended. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars another good Lonely Planet guidebook
    I used this guidebook while visiting Montreal in summer 2001 and had no problems at all. As to be expected from Lonely Planet, the color maps at the back are great and the three walking tours really give you a feel for the city. The restaurant list was excellent, especially an extended section on Montreal's famous bagels. There was a large chapter on excursions from Montreal, which included Ottawa, Quebec City and the Laurentian mountains among other places. All the standard Lonely Planet bits on history, culture, arts and religion were very informing; best was the little section on Canadian French where I learned to say "y'est quelle heure" instead of "quelle heure est-il."

    The only complaint I could have was the lack of a map of the underground shopping city, which we found confusing to navigate, even with the map provided by the tourist authority. Otherwise it's as good a guidebook to Montreal as you're likely to find anywhere. ... Read more

    When Jonathan Waterman set out to cross the Arctic Circle by way of kayak, cross-country skis, and a dogsled, he was less interested in conquering the 2,200 miles between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans than in learning to live as the Inuit had before him (Inuit, for The People, is the name Canadian Eskimos prefer). Good thing, for the Arctic, as revealed in this candid and engrossing travelogue, is no place for jock-style adventure. Over the course of three summers, Waterman paddled through storms, capsized in 39-degree water, blacked out, and was bitten by thousands of mosquitoes, smoked out by exploding underground seams of coal, and chased by a grizzly bear. The land was so vast and empty that swans and bears vanished before him, ice chunks appeared as kayaks, and driftwood morphed into people in a disorienting series of mirages. Perhaps most challenging of all for Waterman was spending weeks at a time in this setting without seeing another soul. Under these circumstances, he had no choice but to draw on remnant instincts to avoid disaster, forget about time and goals, and to connect deeply to "the Earth and Its Great Weather," as the Inuit say. "Any committed adventurer eventually learns that equipment and performance are just a means to that greater end of finding your place in the natural world," writes Waterman, who proves he is willing to go the extra thousand miles for a moment of insight.

    Of course, he also experiences moments of unparalleled serenity--caribou trotting out to his boat, belugas spouting around him, grizzlies on the shore--and creates warm friendships with the Inuit themselves, who have changed radically since their own days of traveling by kayak and dogsled. Waterman works admirably to understand The People without judging them, though he is discouraged by what he finds left of the culture he emulates--communities caught in a "depraved limbo, somewhere between paradise and tuberculosis." As with the Arctic itself, the Inuit turn out to be more complex in reality--and ultimately more appealing--than in mythology. Waterman's stark and satisfying account excels in its ability to grapple with the human condition while illuminating a mystical world inaccessible to the rest of us. --Lesley Reed ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars More than I expected!!
    A friend of mine recommended this book to me because I have always been interested in the native people of Alaska and Canada. Jonathan Waterman, in "Arctic Crossings", is very sensative to the Inuit story, not only their history, but also the tenuous circumstances of their lives today. Also, I was very touched by the sharing of his tender emotions about being alone on a long voyage. AND, I loved his descriptions of the wild life, especially the bears, throughout the book. Included are extrordinry color photographs of wildlife as well as different passages of the trip. The Banff Book Awards agreed: This book was choosen and the Best Adventure Travel Book of 2001.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Classic, pure and simple
    This is one of those rare books that will stand larger with time. Waterman's journey through the Arctic Circle becomes a circling through both a culture and through the soloist's heart, a sort of Odyssey by kayak and with shotgun. There is everything to admire about this thoughtful book, the writing, the almost transparent self protrait, the ineffable scholarship, the raw adventure, and - refreshingly in this day of chest-thumping adrenaline junkies - an ethic of self preservation vs. summit-fever risk taking. Ironically, as the author set out upon this solitary epic, his stated intention was to avoid an epic. He judges the sea currents the way he judges bear tracks, with an eye to not only surviving, but thriving. His storytelling is pitch perfect. In presenting the Inuit, he gives us an ancient hunter culture stripped of the noble savage. He sketches the overlay of post-modern Western civilization in the "wastelands" without a preachment, only a fenceline in the middle of nowhere and surly guards on alert against no one. As icebergs metamorphose into animals, and animals shape-shift into driftwood, we grow into an alternate reality, one where trees are like magical trespassers. He shows this immortal land as entirely mortal and vulnerable, nothing new there. But where he finds a long dead Western explorer, it is cautionary, for it is himself - and us - that lie in the barrens without a witness. All in all, Arctic Crossing is a haunting book, beautifully written, utterly authentic, wise, poignant, and warmed throughout by one man's quest for the human condition.

    Jon Waterman is a writer who belongs between the hardcovers. His explorations and introspection make for compelling reading.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Articulate Adventurer
    Who was it who said, "less is more"? That's one truth that stands out in Jonathan Waterman's "Artic Crossing" - a epical solo trip of the Northwest Passage done without fanfare, without oodles of sponsorship dough. I liked the author's cool, understated writing style, the wry observations about his sufferings and about the Inuits. No hyperbole, none of self-inflation that is so common in adventure writing, this book is truly believable. A wonderful read.

    Just the kind of book I'd want wandering these Parks for the first time. Along with lodging and eating ideas, this book includes maps of the parks, hiking routes and descriptions, and my particular favorite, the section near the end which gave background of the geological, flora and fauna aspects of this region. It was well organized and easily utilized. I carried it my bag and referred to it often, and was able to astound (or annoy) my companions with countless facts.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Glacier National Park in Canada or USA?
    The title is confusing, as there is a Glacier National Park in British Columbia that is close to Banff and Jasper and quite separate from the park with the same name in Montana. Lonely Planet confirms that the book actually covers Waterton-Glacier (the "international peace park" comprising Glacier National Park in Montana and Waterton National Park in Alberta). The book does NOT, however, cover the smaller, less well-known Glacier National Park in Canada. Here's hoping the 2nd edition adopts a clearer title... ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful!
    This book helped make my birthday weekend AMAZING. Instead of hanging out at all the standard tourist-y spots, we were surrounded by locals for most of the trip. This book made our trip, and next time we go somewhere, we're relying on the irreverent guide. (Restaurant guide was especially helpful, but the maps weren't so great...it took us forever to find Havana-but it was totally worth it)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Frommer's Irreverent Guide to Vancouver
    This book is great!, i don't know Vancouver but i got excited about my first vacation in that town. Now, i know where to go and how spend my days. This book references cool places, addresses and costs. I have other two books about vancouver and this is my favorite.

It references costs, addresses, mileage and the "inside scoop" on nearly every place to visit in Vancouver, B.C. - Fantastic! ...A "Vancouver bible!" ... Read more
