The Most Beautiful Villages and Towns of the Pacific Northwest

€ 48.95

s well as astonishing natural beauty the communities of Pacific Northwest are rich in architectural treasures, quaint main streets and quirky local traditions.

Centuries ago abundant natural resources brought explorers, fur traders and pioneers to this remote corner of North America; today sparkling waterways, pristine mountains and broad beaches draw visitors to Oregon, Washington and British Columbia.

Illustrated with stunning photographs, The Most Beautiful Villages and Towns of the Pacific Northwest wends its way through 36 of the most intriguing villages and small towns in the Northwest, ranging from nineteenth-century seaports, farming communities and military outposts to twenty-first-century ski resorts, coastal getaways and inland rodeo towns where the spirit of the Old West lives on.

Joan Tapper brings the excitement of these unique communities to life, along with the stories of the original settlers who made epic journeys across the continent, trudging along the Oregon Trail or building the Canadian Pacific Railway.

Essential information for travellers and a directory of places to stay and to eat is provided for readers who are inspired to experience the beautiful places in this book for themselves.
