Enchanted Isles Tour

Posted: Friday, December 7, 2007

Attend a book signing on Mayne Island with Enchanted Isles ($34.95, Harbour Publishing) author David A.E. Spalding and photographer Kevin Oke, at Miners Bay Books, on Sunday December 16 at 1 pm.

Enchanted Isles offers an insider’s perspective on the unique beauty and charm of the southern Gulf Islands that run along the coast between Victoria and Nanaimo. This gorgeous coffee-table book is sure to be a hit with island dwellers and tourists alike.

Both the author, David A.E. Spalding and the photographer, Kevin Oke are long-time residents of the gulf islands so they are able to offer the valuable knowledge available only to true islanders.

Brimming with gorgeous colour photography by Oke, Enchanted Isles begins with a historic overview detailing how the islands served as a favoured hideaway for some of BC’s most distinguished eccentrics. Remittance men and other escapees from British stuffiness form one stream of islanders, but there have been many others.

Enchanted Isles showcases local wildlife, captures local character and history and offers insider tips for visitors. It is a spectacular book that shows why the Gulf Islands rank with Whistler and the Pacific Rim as one of the most popular tourist destinations in BC.
