When Tania Millen began doing horse pack trips in western Canada, she had trouble deciding where to go - not because there were so many options, but because information was so hard to come by.

Millen provides information on fourteen multiday horse pack trips that will take experienced backcountry riders, inspired novice riders and avid hikersfrom the snow-capped mountains and flower-strewn meadows of the Chilcotin to volcanic landforms in Tweedsmuir Park and on the Spatsizi Plateau, from the familiar sights of Banff and Jasper National Parks to the less familiar Rocky Mountain parks of Kakwa and Mount Assiniboine. In this unique and well-researched guidebook, Millen includes all the details necessary to plan a successful trip: directions to the trailhead, length and difficulty of each journey, permit requirements, camping and grazing areas, trip description, maps and photographs, plus historical anecdotes for these distinctive and stunningly beautiful areas in Western Canada's wilderness. Trip list: + Big Creek and South Chilcotin + Itcha-Ilgachuz + Kakwa + Mount Assiniboine + Potato Range + Snowy Protected Area and Cathedral Provincial Park + Spatsizi + Tweedsmuir South Provincial Park + Banff National Park + Jasper National Park + Willmore Wilderness Park

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a good mix of practicality, geography and story-telling. Although I have not done any horse pack trips‎, I still found the background of the author's trips to be very interesting. Some of the areas I have hiked into, and others I would like to get to someday, so I could easily relate to the content. The book is well laid-out and easy to access. The research is thorough. All in all, I recommend it to anyone with an interest in outdoor trips in BC.
