Rocky Mountain Books: 2019
Searching for breathtaking hikes worth exploring
Rocky Mountain Books recently published a superb series that highlights five areas worth trekking and mentions trails that are better to hike in comparison to others. The series contains five books with authors that have extensive knowledge of the regions covered. You’ll want to add each book to your collection; the combination of the text, maps, and photos in each book makes ownership worthwhile.
This popular hiking series is updated regularly to provide up-to-date information, maps, and terrain. You’ll find the latest information and directions when planning a new hiking destination.
The five books in the updated 2019 “Popular Day Hikes” series include:
Canadian Rockies by Tony Daffern
Kananaskis Country by Gillean Daffern
Northern Okanagan: Vernon, Shuswap, Lumby by Gerry Shea
South-Central Okanagan: Kelowna, Penticton, Oliver by Gerry Shea
Vancouver Island by Theo Dombrowski
Take a hike!
Every book lists and describes between 35-40 hikes in each region – with attractive and evocative colours and photographs. And, to make each trip even more enticing and
convincing, for those with different skill and strength levels, each trip description lists distance, height gain, challenge level, high point, and best time of the year to make the trip. You’ll also find an area map at the beginning of each section.
There is no doubt Rocky Mountain Books should be warmly commended on publishing these series for those keen to take to the hills and mountain terrain. The primers also sell at an affordable price. Urbanites and recreationists can get a taste of the great outdoors at an affordable price and try out the expansive terrains in Alberta or British Columbia.
