Riassunto:

In recent years BC coast boaters have been discovering an exciting new world of cruising north of Desolation Sound, but unfamiliarity with the complex maze of islands and inlets often referred to as the Broughton Archipelago has deterred many yachters. Now, Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones, whose four classic guides on southern waters have made them the coast's favourite cruising writers, weigh in with their long-awaited fifth volume on the fabulous cruising territory north of the rapids.

Taking up where Volume 2 ( Desolation Sound and the Discovery Islands) left off, Volume 5 includes all of the familiar features that make the Dreamspeaker series the most popular cruising guides of our time. Numerous charts and aerial photos clearly delineate the safest routes north into Queen Charlotte Strait and the myriad islands surrounding it. Laurence's whimsical hand-drawn maps expose the dangers and attractions of key anchorages among the maze-like passages with matchless clarity. Anne's buoyant commentary draws on her own exhaustive research to evoke the mythic past of this overpowering "Kwakiutl Country" and provide a knowing guide to hidden treasures and not-to-be missed attractions. Laurence's fine scenic photography adds the crowning touch to one of the most handsome marine guides yet seen on this coast.

L'autore: Born in Durban, South Africa, Anne Yeadon-Jones is an apparel designer and stylist, who has managed to juggle fashion, boating and writing. She and her husband Laurence are experienced offshore and inshore sailors, who in 1985 voyaged from Southampton, England on their first sailing expedition across the Atlantic Ocean. They have logged thousands of cruising hours charting, recording and photographing their adventures along the beautifully rugged southern coastline of the Pacific Northwest. To date they have produced six colourful, information-packed Dreamspeaker Cruising Guides and see themselves as passionate ambassadors of the area's unspoiled cruising waters, it's coastal communities and local enterprises. Anne and Laurence are also regular contributors to local and international boating magazines, including Northwest Yachting, 48 North Magazine, Canadian Yachting, and Pacific Yachting. They live in Vancouver's West End and are able to keep their 36-foot sailboat Dreamspeaker and faithful dingy Tink very close by and ready to go at a moment's notice.
