In recent years BC coast boaters have been discovering an exciting new world of cruising north of Desolation Sound, but unfamiliarity with the complex maze of islands and inlets often referred to as the Broughton Archipelago has deterred many yachters. Now, Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones, whose four classic guides on southern waters have made them the coast's favourite cruising writers, weigh in with their long-awaited fifth volume on the fabulous cruising territory north of the rapids.

Taking up where Volume 2 (Desolation Sound and the Discovery Islands) left off, Volume 5 includes all of the familiar features that make the Dreamspeaker series the most popular cruising guides of our time. Numerous charts and aerial photos clearly delineate the safest routes north into Queen Charlotte Strait and the myriad islands surrounding it. Laurence's whimsical hand-drawn maps expose the dangers and attractions of key anchorages among the maze-like passages with matchless clarity. Anne's buoyant commentary draws on her own exhaustive research to evoke the mythic past of this overpowering "Kwakiutl Country" and provide a knowing guide to hidden treasures and not-to-be missed attractions. Laurence's fine scenic photography adds the crowning touch to one of the most handsome marine guides yet seen on this coast.

About the Author:

Accomplished boating guide authors Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones have produced a series of seven Dreamspeaker Guides that provide the most detailed coverage of the Pacific Northwest, from Olympia, Washington State to Cape Scott, British Columbia.

Over the last 27 years the Yeadon-Joneses have logged thousands of cruising hours charting, recording and photographing their travels. As passionate ambassadors of the Pacific Northwest's unspoiled cruising waters, their Dreamspeaker Guides are filled with meticulous hand-drawn charts and vital information that guide boaters safely into busy harbors, marinas and sheltered anchorages.

The Dreamspeaker Guides began with Laurence's love of drawing, design and geography and Anne's flair for descriptive and entertaining letter writing. Combining their talents, they were able to create a successful series of guides that promote a safe and fun boating lifestyle.

Review:

These sailors cum authors don't just ply the water where they travel, they connect with the people and the communities. That intimacy is reflected in this popular series of cruising guides...essential for local and visiting boaters. --Teresa Bird, North Island Gazette

Deeply immersed in the culture of boating, The Broughtons is an indispensable guide for any boater who wishes to visit this beautiful corner of our BC Coast... Highly recommended. --Catherine Dook, Boat Journal

The completeness of The Broughtons is truly exhaustive...A valuable addition to the library of any serious cruiser. --Robert Buller, Pacific Yachting
