| 'Boating Dogs' . |
In the maze of islands straddling the border between Vancouver and USA, doggie boaters, like cruising sailors in many parts of the world, have had to rely on perfunctory walks ashore with their boating owners. Now there’s a travel guide for four-legged cruisers in ‘South Islander, Memoirs of a Cruising Dog’. The book is as charming and readable as it is useful and cruising sailors everywhere in the world will wish they had a similar guide.
Negotiate the rapids with Amanda Spottiswoode and her canine companions. Dog owners will delight in the adventures and misadventures of cruising the waters between Vancouver Island and the mainland.
South Islander is a humorous, light-hearted memoir based on more than a decade of cruising the coast, hiking off-the-beaten-paths and scouting out the best dog walks in some of the most breathtaking locations on the coast.
Featuring 31 exquisitely illustrated maps by Molly March, this book will inspire even the most boat-bound cruiser to step ashore and explore, and have their dogs straining at the leash!
South Islander, Memoirs of a Cruising Dog is available online at FriesenPress.com/Bookstore, Amazon and Chapters.
It is also available for order from most book retailers.
