Exploring the interior country roads of British Columbia.


Exploring the interior country roads of British Columbia.

Bryan, Liz.

Heritage House Publishing


190 pages




Travel writer Bryan leads readers on 18 scenic drives through British Columbia's backcountry roads in text combining rich description with regional history accompanied by color photographs and basic maps for each journey. Among the sites readers can visit are Native pictographs at the Dog Creek Dome (one of many indigenous sites), the stops along the Cariboo trade route near Barkerville, the dramatic near-desert landscape at Farewell Canyon, and the eerie Spotted Lake, which gets it name from the colorful film at its surface caused by mineral deposits. Oversize: 9x10.5".
