This is a story of travel, told in 251 full color photographs and 240 pages. Tourism in the true sense of the word, getting in the car and going on tour. Our tour took us from Vancouver to Hope, where we joined perhaps the most famous highway in BC, the Caribou Wagon Road, Highway 97. At Prince George we left 97 and turned west on Highway 16 to Smithers, the infamous so-called "Highway of Tears." West of Smithers, at Kitwanga, we turned north on Highway 37, known in part as the Stewart-Cassiar Highway. A short trip on Highway 37A, arguably the most scenic stretch of road in Canada, took us to Stewart BC, and Hyder, Alaska. Then back out to 37 at Meziadin Junction, and north to the Alaska Highway a few kilometers west of Watson Lake.
From Watson Lake, we drove through Fort Nelson and Fort St. John and then on to Dawson Creek, Grande Prairie, and Edmonton. We visited Drumheller and then Calgary. Finally a two-day drive back to the left coast.
The purpose of any book is surely to give the reader access. Here I am giving you access to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. But it is not inaccessible to anyone with a car, bicycle, or bus ticket. Or for that matter, a pair of good walking shoes. This book is just intended to wet your appetite for a closer, more personal look at the place we call British Columbia
