    Its construction is not as durable as one would like for a reference to carry with you while hiking, but what can one expect for that small an asking price? However, the descriptions and maps for each hike are easy to understand--even for the novice hiker. 25 easy hikes are included in the book, with distance, degree of difficulty, time required, and elevation change included.

    The same sharp intelligence and self-deprecating wit that made MichaelJ. Fox a star in the Family Ties TV series and Back to the Futuremake this a lot punchier than the usual up-from-illness celebrity memoir. Yes,he begins with the first symptoms of Parkinson's disease, the incurable illnessthat led to his retirement from Spin City (and acting) in 2000. And yes,he assures us he is a better, happier person now than he was before he wasdiagnosed. In Fox's case, you actually might believe it, because he thencheerfully exposes the insecurities and self-indulgences of his pre-Parkinson'slife in a manner that makes them not glamorous but wincingly ordinary and ofcourse very funny. ("As for the question, 'Does it bother you that maybe shejust wants to sleep with you because you're a celebrity?' My answer to that onewas, 'Ah...nope.'") With a working-class Canadian background, Fox has anunusually detached perspective on the madness of mass-media fame; hisdescription of the tabloid feeding frenzy surrounding his 1988 wedding to TracyPollan, for example, manages to be both acid and matter-of-fact. He is frank butnot maudlin about his drinking problem, and he refreshingly notes that gettingsober did not automatically solve all his other problems. This readable, wittyautobiography reminds you why it was generally a pleasure to watch Fox onscreen:he's a nice guy with an edge, and you don't have to feel embarrassed aboutliking him. --Wendy Smith ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A book that celebrates life
    Most people know that Michael J. Fox is a talented and charismatic actor,
    but what you realize when you read "LUCKY MAN" is that he is also an
    amazing human being. His experience with Parkinson's Disease is obviously
    a major theme of this book, but you never feel sorry for him, nor does he
    ever complain about what has happened to him. In fact, he does just the
    opposite and explains how he actually found his life and his vitality when
    he came to terms with his circumstances. His honesty and vulnerability in
    describing his life leading up to his diagnosis and coping with the reality
    of an (as yet) incurable disease has helped and will help many thousands of
    people lead happier lives. After reading this book, I find myself inspired
    by the possibilities life has to offer and grateful that Mr. Fox chose to
    share the intimate details of his and his family's journey so that
    everyone, not just those afflicted with Parkinson's Disease,
    can lead lives as their own master, as creators of an extraordinary life for themselves.

    While reading "LUCKY MAN", I kept wishing I could recommend "WORKING ON
    YOURSELF DOESN'T WORK" by Ariel and Shya Kane to Michael J. Fox and the
    Parkinson's community he discovered. Anyone who is touched by his outlook
    on life, who is looking for something magical, who wants to discover the
    moment-by-moment joy of being alive should read this book also. In "LUCKY
    MAN", I found empathy, compassion and admiration for Mr. Fox and those who
    suffer from PD (or other debilitating diseases). In "WORKING ON YOURSELF
    DOESN'T WORK", you will find the road map to loving life, no matter what
    your circumstances.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Why should Michael J. Fox pen his memoirs?
    Because his story is more fascinating than most Presidents.'

    Fox begins with the first twitch he felt in his left hand back in 1990. He titled this chapter, "A Wake-up Call," but even he admits he went through long periods of doubt, denial and even self-destruction on the road to accepting Parkinson's Disease as part of his daily life.

    Even though Fox goes into great detail about his battle with Parkinson's, he also takes you back to his childhood and all the way up to modern day. His words are candid, straight from the heart and he doesn't sugarcoat his autobiography to be a self-serving tool.

    The love of his family clearly shows throughout the book as he talks about his brother, three sisters, parents and his beloved grandmother, Nana. And, of course, he doesn't leave out his home life with wife Tracy and their four children.

    From his "escape artist" days as a two-year-old in Canada where neighbors labeled him as a real "charmer," to his decision to go public with his disease, Fox bares his soul in these pages. This includes how he got started in showbiz in Canada, crossing over to Hollywood success and even living the glamorous lifestyle.

    Heart-warming tales are scattered throughout and you can't help but laugh, cry and feel like Fox is a member of your own family.

    You're embarrassed for him when he meets with an agent in the late '70s who thinks he has a physical handicap because he's wearing platform boots with four-inch heels and two-inch soles, which he thought were in style. As he speaks about becoming a man on his 18th birthday, the sense of being an adult since he's now legal age, you'll laugh outloud when he says he blew out the candles on his Mickey Mouse birthday cake.

    You witness the growth of his relationship with Tracy that ultimately lead to marriage and the start of his own family. You shudder when you realize the pain and turmoil he and his family endure as he has undergoes brain surgery, being awake during the entire process.

    And you watch the evolution of this man come full circle as he leaves the partying behind to dedicate himself to his family and to the search for a Parkinson's Disease cure.

    Michael J. Fox is not just an award-winning actor, he's a devoted family man and an activist for research-funding and finding a cure for Parkinson's Disease. With "Lucky Man," Fox also proves he is an outstanding author. The book has topped the New York Times bestseller lists and the audio tapes have been nominated for a Grammy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars More than a bio, ten stars plus, a must read by all,
    Michael J. Fox was born in Edmonton in 1961. Residing in Burnaby, British Columbia, while his father was in the Royal Canadian Army Signal Corps, he recounts growing up with parents, siblings, Nana, and friends. Describing himself in the toddler years, Michael says, "... a handful, a whirlwind... precociously funny in a what-spaceship-dropped-off-this-alien kind of way." Michael's early love of music, specifically the guitar (self-taught), was fruitful as a member in the "Halex" band. His love of drama and art was realized at age sixteen when Michael made his debut as a twelve-year old in the Canadian Broadcasting Company's production of the series "Leo and Me". Fox's American career was launched with Disney in "Midnight Madness". Career credits include the theater screen with "Back to the Future", "Teen Wolf", and "Doc Hollywood"; and popular television series, "Family Ties" (on the set, Michael met actress/wife Tracy Pollan), and "Spin City". With humor Michael describes success, '...those who got, get', i.e., if famous and with fortune, free offers abound. Just the mention of his favorite beer in a conversation, brought a truckload of the beverage to his front door... with a promise of more anytime he wanted it!

    Fox's emotional journey in facing the reality of the diagnosis of Young Onset Parkinson's Disease (PD) began in 1990 with the twitching of a finger. In LUCKY MAN, Fox approaches his story with wit, positive attitude and honesty, emotions, and the trials in the continuation of his career. The diagnosis of PD was understandably kept from the public for seven years... shared only with his inner circle of family and trusted associates. Michael experienced the ritual commonly traversed with diagnosis of debilitating diseases including anger, denial and acceptance. Candidly, Fox tells his faults, ups and downs, the highs and lows of life and show biz, his philosophy, and the thrill of playing hockey against Bobby Orr. In admitting his problem with alcohol and the existence of PD, Michael is led to a therapist and engages a permanent neurologist for treatment of his illness.

    As an advocate for PD research funding, Fox has testified before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee Hearing. His campaigning efforts, continued to this day, have had a definite effect on raising awareness of PD in the public and private sectors. Specifically, the acknowledgement that PD is prevalent in earlier ages vs. the medical textbooks statement that PD is diagnosed in later ages of 50-65 years. The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Disease Research has become a passion in his life. To this date, the exact cause of PD is unknown. LUCKY MAN is not only biographical, it is a highly-informational writing with regard to the progression and research of PD. Medications associated with treatment are described, differing in results with each person. Fox says of his release of the diagnosed illness to the public, "Disclosure had allowed me to rearrange life so that I could get more from it."

    Michael J. Fox possesses obvious penchant for writing. His exceptional narrative in LUCKY MAN is philosophical, uplifting and insightful. While reading LUCKY MAN, I laughed and I cried. I am in awe of Michael J. Fox for his honesty, humility, compassion, and courage (that includes wife/actress Tracy Pollan and his four children). Review based on paperback edition 2003

    5-0 out of 5 stars A GOOD READ FROM MARTY MCFLY
    I REALLY LIKED THIS BOOK. MIKE DOES A GOOD JOB DESCRIBING HIS DISEASE. HE GOES IN GREAT DETAIL WITH THE SYMPTOMS, DENIAL, MEDICATION, ACCEPTANCE AND FINALLY COMING OUT OF THE CLOSET IN DEALING WITH THIS DISEASE. HE ALSO GOES IN DETAIL WITH HIS OTHER BATTLE WITH ALCOHOL WHICH HE NOW HAS SEVERAL YEARS OF SOBRIETY. I FIND MIKE TO BE A PRETTY GOOD GUY WHO HAS FACED ALOT OF ADVERSITY. I LOVED HIM IN THE BACK TO THE FUTURE MOVIES AND AS ALEX KEATON IN FAMILY TIES. A VERY TALENTED AND FUNNY GUY. I GIVE ALOT OF CREDIT FOR FACING UP TO HIS DEAMONS AND COMING PUBLIC WITH BOTH OF HIS DISEASES. A VERY INTERESTING BOOK. ALSO GIVE CREDIT TO MIKE'S WIFE TRACY FOR STAYING WITH HIM THRU HIS DRINKING DAYS. THE ONLY THING I WISHED HE HAD DONE IS THIS BOOK IS TOLD US MORE ABOUT WAS THE MAKING OF HIS BACK TO THE FUTURE MOVIES. THIS IS A VERY SMALL COMPLAINT. A MUST READ FOR EVERYONE.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A worthy companion for these parks
    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

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent buy
    We spent a week in the Canadian Rockies, using this book as our guide. The book gives excellent recommendations for accomodations and activities - we did not go wrong following them. It gives more information that is beyond the basic, "usual", details. It also includes descriptions of many hikes, from 1-hour hikes to full-day hikes, as well as description of road-accessible sites for the non-hikers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
    I'm impressed. The author really knows Canada's Rocky Mountains and it shows. Not only does he write about the region in a knowledgeable manner, but it's obvious through his writing that he has been on the hiking trails he discusses and eaten at the restaurants he recommends. It was the seeminly insignificant things in this guide that caught our attention and made our vacation more enjoyable - which side of a hotel to request a room that catches the evening sun, a comment on the bathrooms at a particular restaurant (that truly were memorable), tips on cutting the cost of our car rental, hints on taking better pictures in the mountains, and tips on how to escape the crowds. As a comparison, the other guidebook we had with us had all the basic information, but was very bland - with reviews of all the obvious touristy restaurants, no real direction as to which were the best hikes, etc.

    If you are traveling to Canada's Rockies I would definitely recommend the Moon book over the others.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good foundation handbook to have for the Northern Rockies
    I would augment it with another guidebook to balance reviews and recommendations.Moon Handbooks are great for the traveler on a "middle class" budget and will guide you to the "must sees" without the extra confusing fluff that other guidebooks include.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource
    Not really a review, but a definite This Is a Great Book. I'd never heard of Moon Handbooks, but purchased this guide through Amazon and found it helped immensely on recent trip to Canada.

    A very comprehensive and detailed guide to many of the lesser known trails (as well as the more known ones). Many of the maps are good, some are clearly lacking detail; however, it allows the natural sense of adventure to flourish in the beautiful environs. The book provides a wonderful overview of the area when the chapters are put together. Mike's directional ordering made it very easy to connect one trail with another for a day of small hikes or a day of longer hikes. I traveled too late to stay at any of the backcountry campsites covered; however, we did follow some of the hikes to/from, and they were incredible. I highly recommend travelling to this area immediately after Labor Day as there are fewer crowds. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars From a Rocky Mountain RV enthusiast
    We have owned the Trailer Life Directory for several years and find it to be an excellent investment for anyone who wants to know about the RV parks and campgrounds in the United States.
    We have placed the tabs that come in the book into the various states locations so that we can quickly find the state that we want to learn about. We plan to purchase the 2004 edition when it becomes available as the prices change each year along with new rv campgrounds emerging and some no longer available.
    An excellent way to know what is available ahead of time.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Before Planning a Trip, Buy a Guide
    I've only been in RV'ing for a short time. Amoung the biggest fears I had in planning a trip was reserving a campgroung that was unsatisfactory. I went to the bookstore and spent an hour thumbing through Trailer Life and Woodall's. Both are great guides, but I found TL's rating to be much more thorough. They have three ratings 1-10 where Woodall's was just two 1-5. Both seemed to cover the same amount of spots and have the exact same ads, so on the outside they seemed to be just as accepted by campgrounds as the de facto guides. I've been pretty pleased with the ratings that TL provided, and it has kept me from being dissappointed. However, the listings are mostly by cities or mailing address. So if you looking to find a great campground in an area it may be listed under the mailing address rather then the area. That can be difficult to cross-reference city and town names with local areas. It'd be nice if they had a numbered map by region or state. That'd make it much easier for planning. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Glacier National Park in Canada
    Note that the Glacier National Park mentioned in this book is in Canada, not the United States.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent & an Excellent Value (4 Parks in One Book)
    The only reason I usually buy Falcon Guides is if there's no other guide for that park, I think they're just OK. But the two women that wrote this one did an excellent and thorough job. The descriptions for each trail tell you what to expect at literally almost every turn. (They'll say things like "at 1.3 kilometers you'll come to this mountain, at 1.6 km you'll reach a lake where the turn can be hard to find, so..." etc.) If you've ever had to find your way through a poorly marked national park trail, you'll know how valuable that can be. Also, they have the guts to come out and say things like "this trail is too much work for not enough scenery" and then back it up with evidence, not just leave it as their opinion. This will probably let you save a lot of time if your vacation time is limited, as it usually is. I would have liked to see a few more pictures, but other than that they did a great job. Plus, it has four national parks in one book, so it's a pretty good value. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Handy and well illustrated
    I ordered this book before our first trip to the Canadian Rockies and found it very helpful in anticipating and planning our excursions. It is so nicely illustrated that it remains a very pleasant reminder of our trip to Banff. I thought it well done and sufficiently descriptive.

    2-0 out of 5 stars A Misleading Title
    Of the 4 books I have read dealing with "day" hiking, this one is the worst. First: it contains hikes that are far more difficult than what I was lead to believe by the word dayhike. Second: the maps of the hikes are very poorly illustrated. Third: the discription of the hikes themselves are lacking in any detail or directions. Fourth: the book contains only hikes in the area immediately around the town of Banff, and does not contain hikes in the entire Park of of Banff. I was very dissappointed in it. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Out of focus
    Despite there being a plethora of books on the National Parks of the US, there are very few books available which focus on Canada. This book has a good editorial review, so I was very much looking forward to receiving it. However, I was quite disappointed when I received it. Although it is advertised as having "breath-taking" photographs, most of the photos are rather poor. The larger ones are mostly out of focus and look like they've been taken on a cheap compact camera (this may be due to poor printing and not poor photography). In this age of great photographic and printing technology, I can't understand why such poor quality photos are still published. The text is informative and well written, but rather brief. The park-maps are too small and devoid of any detail: they basically only show the location, the rough shape of the boundary, the roads, and sometimes a couple of lakes. After reading this book, I still feel that I do not have a real idea about what most of the National Parks of Canada are like. ... Read more
