Cape Breton Highlands National Park REVISED — A Park Lover's Companion
by Clarence Barrett • maps, drawings, details about every trail • 35 colour photos • 184 pages
44 EXCELLENT HIKES! NEW TRAILS!
Adventures in hiking, skiing, kayaking—quirks of wildlife—affectionate appreciation of our National Park’s natural beauty—all make for entertaining and informative reading from a legendary outdoorsman, who has rewalked and updated all 44 trails.
A good storyteller and retired Park warden, he weaves his adventures into facts about flora and fauna, geology and weather—and where along the road to see the evidence.
Much more than a guide—for both hikers and armchair travellers!
“Barrett’s book ranks with the best nature writing in Canada.”—Paul MacDougall, author of Distinction Earned: Cape Breton's Boxing Legends
