Vancouver Tonight Book Review
Giant man-eating extraterrestrials? No, but you got the carnivorous part right. Tiny, insect chomping Sundew inhabit swamps and bogs, attracting bugs and keeping them interested with sticky secretions. Not only well-adapted to dissolving gnats, indigenous peoples of the coast put sundew to work dissolving corns and warts much like a product from Dr. Scholls. While Europeans considered the sundew to be a potent potion when fishing for romance, the Haida summoned its powers to reel in the really, big ones.

For the day hiker with bus fare you'll find a double dozen destinations in coastal British Columbia. The Day Hiking section features a range of levels from easy to demanding in both urban and wilderness settings. The hikes featured in BC Car-Free: Exploring Southwestern British Columbia Without a Car are as close as North Vancouver and as far away as the Whistler - Squamish corridor and the Gulf Islands.
