There's no better way to explore one of the world's most livable cities than on foot. Walking Vancouver shows you Vancouver, British Columbia as you've never seen it before, whether you're a die-hard local or a first-time visitor. Site of the 2010 Winter Olympics, the city is already renown for its diverse neighborhoods, easily accessible sites, and "clean and green" image. With this book you'll explore neighborhoods such as Chinatown, Kitsilano, and the West End, accompanied by the amusing and savvy descriptions from the author, a Vancouver insider. The 36 anecdote-packed, easy-to-follow ambles include Stanley Park's hidden sites; University of British Columbia's unexpected attractions; Granville Island's artisan pit stops; and the historic mansions of old-school Shaughnessy Heights. There's a perfect pub crawl in Gastown; lively farther afield strolls in Steveston, New Westminster and the North Shore; and even an eye-opening tour around the Downtown Eastside. You'll uncover the colorful stories behind street names, character buildings, and eye-catching public art. This highly portable guide features detailed maps for each trip, original photos, and parking/transit information for every trip. Route summaries make each walk easy to follow, and a "Points of Interest" section summarizes each walk's highlights.

From trails to spectacular waterfalls near Squamish and historic urban forests in South Surrey, coastal headlands in Howe Sound and ridgetop meadows in the Fraser Valley,109 Walks offers a route for everyone who likes to be outdoors.

This writing began as a light, retrospective narration walking through remembrances common to many who grew up in prairie farming communities in the last seventy years. The walk continued through life’s experiences which were, in turn, challenging or hilarious, poignant or bitter, and probably not highly unusual. It became apparent to the writer that a benevolent Presence had been the constant companion in the journey. In order to overcome inherent obstinacy, the Spirit of God nudged, pulled, coaxed and even pushed as was needed. The writer was able to invariably choose joy in the culmination of her life’s experiences because of the deep love she experienced from her Heavenly Father. As a result, this writing evolved from a collection of vignettes into a spiritual biography written with introspective vulnerability for the enjoyment and contemplation of her children, her grandchildren and all those who were part of her journey.
