Packed with descriptions of the natural history, ecosystems, and diverse landscapes of British Columbia and accompanied by numerous maps, this thorough guide is enhanced by Donald Gunn”s charming line drawings and the authors” infectious~enthusiasm, making it a must-have for novice and expert birders alike.

SPES and Greystone books are co-hosting a book launch for this book on August 11 from 2-4 pm at the second floor of the Stanley Park Dining Pavilion.
