Description

The stories of Vancouver and its communities as experienced on various strolls through the city, by bestselling BC author Bill Arnott

Vancouver, one of the world's top travel destinations, is a diverse and complex city renowned for its proximity to nature, from Stanley Park and English Bay to the forests and mountains that surround it. Much has been written of Vancouver's many nature trails and paths for dedicated hikers, but what does the city have to offer to the casual urban stroller?

Join bestselling author Bill Arnott (A Season on Vancouver Island and the Gone Viking travelogues) for a revelatory journey through Vancouver - on foot - to uncover its hidden gems and best-kept secrets. A Perfect Day for a Walk details a series of strolls through Kitsilano, Granville Island, False Creek, the West End, Coal Harbour, Yaletown, Gastown, Chinatown, the Downtown Eastside, and more, accompanied by the stories and histories that make these neighbourhoods unique. Engaging and sensory in style, this book is both an examination and a celebration of Vancouver, a city of remarkable beauty and undeniable challenges. Using only his feet and his unfailing sense of curiosity, Bill Arnott offers a fresh new perspective on Vancouver, from its glorious, incorrigible past to its spectacular, complicated present.
