This showy keepsake book collects images of Vancouver's highlights, celebrating Nitobe Gardens, UBC, the downtown area, and beaches, parks and markets all along the city's encircling seawall. Plus take a virtual visit to Granville Island, the Vancouver Aquarium, and across the SeaBus to Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain in photographs that show all to perfection. A breezy text introduces the many sides of this truly green urban centre. A classic souvenir book, with a new look and fully updated text and images.
