You don’t have forever? Here’s the hiking guidebook for you. Subtitled “The Premier Trails in Southeast B.C., near Kaslo and Nelson,” it doesn’t waste your time on any of the inferior options. No wonder: These are the same authors who gave us “Don’t Waste Your Time in the Canadian Rockies, the Opinionated Hiking Guide.” Their West Kootenay book covers a less known, little-visited mountain wilderness. Located in southeast British Columbia, the area comprises the West Purcell, Selkirk, and Monashee ranges, and includes Valhalla, Kokanee Glacier, and Goat Range provincial parks. It’s an immense region, but the authors focus your attention on the 55 most rewarding dayhikes and backpack trips. Following their advice, you’ll hike enthralling trails and witness the region’s signature scenery: lakes, meadows, ridges, glaciers, and peaks. 140 colour photos help you choose your adventure. An orientation map for each trail enables you to visualize your journey. The authors begin each trip with an “Opinion” section telling you what to expect on that trail and explaining how to enjoy the optimal experience. Each trip also has a “Fact” section, divided into “By Car” and “On Foot.” Here the authors tell you precisely how to drive to the trailhead, then describe in clear, concise detail how to stay on the path to your destination.
