Exploring the San Juanand Gulf IslandsCruising Paradiseof the Pacific Northwest
by Don Douglass and Réanne
Hemingway-DouglasThese veteran world cruisers have returned to their backyard for another cruising guide, and this one is no less useful than its predecessors.
Like its counterpart on the East CoastMainethis area of the U.S. offers splendid waters for exploration of islands, small towns, and wild country: all in protected waters. This guide will undoubtedly become a shipboard staple for vessels in this area because of the faithful work of the authors, who, neglecting the countless joys of cruising, researched for this excellent guide.
