From the Chilcotin to the Chilkoot
Selected Hikes of Northern British Columbia
Insatiable traveller Vivien Lougheed has hiked many of the world's most renowned peaks, including the Andes and the Himalayas, and published several books detailing her adventures. Now, with From the Chilcotin to the Chilkoot: Selected Hikes of Northern British Columbia, she turns her attention to the northern woods and the place she calls home. Hiking, says Lougheed, doesn't have to be a strenuous adventure. It can be as simple as a walk in the park. The hikes in From the Chilcotin to the Chilkoot illustrate her philosophy, ranging from laid-back, one-hour, off-the-highway meanders to challenging, multiple-day trips.
