A new, expanded color edition of Runtz's classic guide to Ontario's Algonquin Park encapsulates decades of his experiences there, and covers everything a visitor might need to know about or have questions on.

Algonquin is a near-North paradise of 3,500 square miles of forests, lakes and rivers atop the rugged Canadian Shield. This idyllic haven from urban life features 1,500 lakes and is easily accessible from dozens of major U.S. and Canadian population centers.

  • Access routes, hiking trails and canoe routes indicated on easy-to-read full-color maps
  • Special chapters on seasonal highlights such as fall colors, wolf-howling sessions, and Northern Lights displays
  • Points of historical interest, such as ranger cabins and aboriginal rock paintings
  • Where, when and how to see moose, wolves, birds and other wildlife
  • A complete list of park facilities, services and publications.

The new, expanded color edition of The Explorer's Guide to Algonquin Park includes dozens of the author's award-winning photographs and chapters on local animal species and their habitats.
