Fourteen islands and seven marine parks are explored in Kahn’s Hiking the Gulf Islands of British Columbia. But first, Kahn begins with the history of the area, hiking etiquette and tips, overview of the flora and fauna, and even safety tips. He uses a rating system for the hikes from one to five stars (with five stars indicating “the most outstanding hikes”). Each chapter covers an island with accompanying history, getting there, services and a helpful “especially for walkers” section. Additionally, each hike is summarized in an easy-to-read table denoting trail length, time required, description, level access and cautions. Additional information is located below the table. Pictures and maps are included, too.
