Sinopsis: The Comox Valley will delight and entertain long-time residents, newcomers and visitors to the area, as well as armchair travellers.
From snowcapped mountains and delicate sub-alpine meadows to sandy beaches and secluded bays, The Comox Valley offers a fascinating look at one of the most popular regions on Vancouver Island--the area that stretches along the east coast of Vancouver Island from Fanny Bay to Black Creek, including the communities of Comox, Courtenay, Cumberland and Merville, as well as Denman and Hornby islands.
The Comox Valley is known for its natural beauty, diverse recreational opportunities and as a vibrant centre of the arts. In a blend of stunning colour photographs and lighthearted, informative text, the book explores the mountains, rivers, beaches and sheltered waters of this unique geographic region. Journey to rural farms and lively urban centres, get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of a Canadian air force base and experience the laid back charm of Denman and Hornby islands. Discover a historic mining village, ancient sites of First Nations' battles and the fossilized remains of an 80 million-year-old elasmosaur. Learn why the Comox Valley has such a high concentration of artists and meet some genuine West Coast characters including a legend from the days of old-time logging.
The Comox Valley will delight and entertain long-time residents, newcomers and visitors to the area, as well as armchair travellers. Paula Wild, Boomer Jerritt and Rick James provide an intimate portrait of an incredibly beautiful and special place.
