Rough Guide to Canada (8th edition)

At long last the latest edition of the Rough Guide to Canada has arrived in book stores across the country!

The new Rough Guide to Canada is fully redesigned and includes a fresh new contemporary design, world-class photography and accurate maps.  In the guide you will also find my updated chapter on The North which highlights the must see places in Nunavut, NWT, Yukon, northern BC & Alberta as well as Haida Gwaii.

Designed to make finding information easier and packed with more feature boxes, itineraries and recommendations, this new full-colour Rough Guides makes it easier than ever to make the most of your time on Earth!

All Rough Guide publications are available in most major book stores and on on-line sites.  Check out for the latest news.

My work continues with Rough Guides as I have recently been asked to rewrite the Alaska Chapter for the 11th edition of the Rough Guide to USA.

Hope all is well in your corner of the world,

Portrait of a Red Fox

Red Fox, Pelly Crossing (Yukon)

Greetings once again from the Yukon!  Spring has been late in coming, but thankfully the temperatures warmed up to above the 20 degree mark and the snow has finally stopped falling.  Hard to believe that we experienced blizzard-like conditions during the May long weekend.  The leaves are out, the sun is in its glory, the birds are singing their tiny hearts out and the grizzlies are out and about with their new born cubs.  The Yukon has finally come back to life after a very long, and cold, winter.

Last night a red fox decided to pay us a visit while friends and I were enjoying the first BBQ of the season.   Cute little fella!

Hope you are all enjoying the sights and sounds of spring.
