5.0 out of 5 stars All you need 2 Feb 2004
Having purchased a couple of more colourful books on British Columbia and Vancouver I felt a little short changed from the lack of information.
I bought this book and all information is concise and informative, maps detailed enough to be of use. There is information on all the usual tourist orientated stuff but also a lot of more 'local' information than is available in any of the other guides read.
If you take one book to British Columbia, make it this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Useful Starting Point 20 Mar 2007
By Steve Keen TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Given a parallel existence, I'd spend it in BC. Eight visits to date and counting (nine if you count a day trip to Victoria from Port Angeles, WA; eleven if you include the momentary forays into BC when skiing at Lake Louise). But it wasn't until the seventh that I bought a guidebook, and it just had to be my go-to-guys at Lonely Planet.

As usual, if nothing else LP provide some excellent background history for the province which helps you understand why some things are where they are, why some things are what they are, and why some are how they are.

Given the size of the area it's understandable that they miss some of the detail I've accumulated over the years. For example, there's a sidebar about Brackendale, where the Bald Eagles go for the winter, but nothing about the excellent café just up Government Road from Eagle Run, at the General Store and Post Office, where they do the best breakfast ever for next to nothing to warm you up for the experience. For later in the day there's also now a bar'n'grill overlooking the river and viewing point. I regret I've never had time to sample the fare at the Eagle's Nest restaurant, situated between the two.

But they do mention some stuff that eight/eleven all-too-brief stays haven't given me the time to get to: I'd driven the Parksville-Port Alberni road four times (once in the dark, admittedly) without registering Cathedral Grove's monster trees, but that road is so well marked with sign posts you can't stop at them all, so it's good to have advice on where to stop. The place that always has me stopping in my tracks, though, is Kennedy Lake, and you don't need a sign post for that - the view itself is enough.
