Following are reviews of the Atlantic Provinces Guides from which this is drawn:
"... an excellent guide for sightseers and adventurers. [The authors] leave no physical or cultural stone unturned. Highly recommended." -- Passport Newsletter
"In planning a trip to Nova Scotia (somewhere I have never been) I used this book extensively. We enjoy hiking, kayaking and general sight-seeing. This book not only provided information on outdoor activities but also on lodging, dining and driving as well as the history of the areas in Nova Scotia. It provides a wealth of information and made our stay much more enjoyable than if we just went there not knowing anything. We brought it along and it was a very important reference for us as we toured the province. I highly recommend it. After reading several travel books, this was the best one and the only one we took on our trip." -- DM Dugan.
"This book is excellent. What I particularly liked was that it mentioned small walks that can be taken in the areas that we visited, as well as archeological sites and wildlife viewing areas, all in my areas of interest." -- Sheila Ferrari.
"We love eastern Canada and have traveled there many times. There are parts described in this books that we have not seen and would love to see. " -- R. Satelmajer
"Barbara and Stillman Rogers have created a guide to Atlantic Canada that is comprehensive and critical, yet never diminishes the charm of this too little explored area of Canada. This "adventure" guide is for both the novice and experienced traveller. Very practical -- including tips on how not to get stuck on a muddy road. If the Rogers haven't found every nook and cranny in Atlantic Canada, then there isn't one worth seeing. I wouldn't leave home for Atlantic Guide without this book tucked into my backpack." -- Anne Carol Burgess
"The Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland & Labrador offer a wide variety of geography, topography, natural wonders, and recreational resources. This is an ideal regional planning and travel guide for everything from bird watching, fossil hunting and hiking, to boating, skiing, horseback riding, and climbing, to cozy dining, comfortable accommodations, and much, much more. Whether its a day trip, a weekend away, or an extended vacation, this has all the information to create and enjoy superb experiences and life-long memories." -- Midwest Book Review
"... a very thorough guide.... This is definitely the book to take with you to Atlantic Canada." -- Travelwriter Marketletter
"Jam-packed with useful information, the hefty volume (620 pages) has an easy-to-follow format with plenty of practical travel tips. Included are recommendations on where to stay and eat, plus detailed background on what to do and see, where and when. Whether you're looking for a cultural and eco-travel experience, wildlife-watching, fishing and camping sites, or merely a respite from a humdrum workaday world, the Rogers can guide you to a rewarding getaway." -- Frequent Flyer Magazine
"Although the 1st edition of this book was terrific, the 2nd edition is even better. We've used it to plan several trips, and the authors' write-ups have steered us in the right direction each time. Coverage is detailed and well written. We highly recommend i
