Format: Paperback
This book was invaluable on a recent trip to Alberta and the Canadian Rockies. We used it to plan our trip and found it to be full of interesting and practical advice. The maps in it were excellent and more accurate then maps which we got when we arrived in Alberta. Not only does this book give good reviews of places to see, stay and eat, it also provides hiking trails and information about other outdoor activities. If you are thinking of visiting Alberta, then this is the only book you will need.

Format: Paperback
We used this guide for Calgary, Banff and Jasper National Parks. Very well laid out, easy to use guide (prefer these to the lonely planet guides). It's informative without going into too much detail. The main places and activities it points you to are the best ones available.

It has a variety of useful maps for each place and useful details to know about the area. It has sections on history, the main sights to see, Hiking, other activities, nightlife, festivals/events, shopping, accommodation, food, getting there/around. Each section was very useful and up to date. It includes great details about sights and activities and provides an opinion without being pushy.

We used it a lot while we were away, it's not too heavy to carry around though maybe a little bulky. Overall it's a fantastic aide to any trip and I highly reccommend it.

Format: Paperback
Moon Handbooks Alberta Including Banff, Jasper, and the Canadian Rockies is the ultimate overview for traveling within Alberta, Canada. This book contains 467 pages of travel information but is still small enough to tuck in a backpack for easy reference. Furthermore, this book has plenty of fairly detailed maps, complete with accurate distance scales, for easy travel planning or reference while you travel.

There are twelve chapters in Moon Handbooks Alberta: Introduction, On the Road, Calgary, Dinosaur Valley, Southern Alberta, West of Calgary, Banff National Park, Jasper National Park, Central Alberta, Edmonton, Northern Alberta, Resources. The introduction chapter contains an overview on Alberta and its various regions. This detailed information includes geology, climate, flora, fauna, history, economy, and the government of the province. The next chapter, On the Road, contains general information and contacts for outdoor recreation; arts and entertainment; accommodations and food; transportation; and information services within the province of Alberta. The Resources chapter contains further information on suggested readings and internet resources.

The rest of the chapters in Moon Handbooks Alberta focus on particular geographical regions within Alberta. The first paragraph or page of each regional section describes a little about the region. After this overview, individual sights, recreation areas, special events, accommodations, food services, information services, and transportation services are depicted in detail. Depending on the size and general amount of facilities in a given region, there may be only one or two entries per category or over a dozen. Each entry contains the location, contacts, costs, and a short paragraph description of the facility or event featured.
