Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

As a travel writer and photographer, Andrew Hempstead has spent many years exploring, photographing, and writing about Canada. He looks forward to spending every second summer at home in the Canadian Rockies, traveling mountain highways and hiking trails, exploring new places and updating old favorites. He spends as much time as possible on the road, traveling incognito, experiencing the many and varied delights of the region just as his readers do. The result is the most comprehensive and up-to-date source of information available for traveling in the Canadian Rockies. Andrew has been writing since the late 1980s, when he left an established career in advertising and took off for Alaska, linking up with veteran travel writer Deke Castleman to research and update the fourth edition of the Moon Handbook to Alaska and the Yukon. Since then he has produced several guides to Canada, including guidebooks to British Columbia, Vancouver and Victoria, Alberta, Western Canada, Atlantic Canada, and Nova Scotia. He is also the author of Moon guidebooks to Australia and New Zealand, and a contributor to "Moon San Juan Islands, Road Trip USA, Northwest Best Places, " and "Eyewitness Guide to the USA, " as well as the updater of "The Illustrated Guide to New Zealand." His writing and photographs have appeared in a wide variety of other media, including "National Geographic Traveler, Travesias, Where, Interval World, " Microsoft's "Automap, " and on the Alaska Airlines and Expedia websites. The website WesternCanadaTravel.com showcases Andrew's work, while also providing invaluable planning tips for travelers heading to Canada.

Von Dancing Queen am 9. Oktober 2014
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Es gibt zwar Infos zu den verschiedenen Gebieten der Rockies, aber kaum praktische Hinweise. Wo kann man gut essen gehen oder bestimmte Dinge einkaufen. Auch die Wanderungen waren übersichtlich, viel Auswahl gab's nicht. Das Moon Handbook Montana war weitaus besser und hatte erheblich mehr zu bieten! Hier bekommt man nicht sehr viel für sein Geld.

Great General Guidebook for the Canadian Rockies 26. November 2008
Von Jenny's Mom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Before heading to the Canadian Rockies for the first time, I spent time reviewing and reading several guidebooks. This one is notable for its really broad overview of the Canadian Rocky area and covers a wide variety of topics such as restaurants, hikes, lodging, sites to see, etc. I used it a lot during the trip and it really made a positive difference in my experience (e.g., by being able to choose great restaurants in the evening, by choosing lesser-known but really cool sites to visit, etc.). It also provided good history of the area, and descriptions of the flora and fauna, all of which interests me when I travel to an area. I used much of the information later to create a photo album with much more interesting verbiage on the places and sites.

I am an avid hiker and backpacker, and therefore did not have the expectation that such a general guide would meet all of my needs in providing detailed and extensive information about trails. This book is not intended for such, and therefore should not be considered a fault. It is probably sufficient for most who enjoy an occasional hike. For those looking for detailed and more thorough hiking information, I highly recommend the hiking "Bible" of the area: "Canadian Rockies Trail Guide", by Brian Patton and Bart Robinson.

For us, best of the bunch 23. August 2007
Von H. Thompson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Using Amazon and local bookstores, I checked out all the recent Canadian Rockies guidebooks I could find before choosing this one. It has good explanations of geology, flora, and fauna found in this area. We took many of the suggestions for lodging, food and things to do, and was not disappointed with any. I'm not a hiker - I walk - so I can't judge the suggested hikes, with the exception of one, rated "easy" near Banff. Not easy. For un-hikers who want to "hike" I recommend Graeme Pole's "Walks and Easy Hikes in the Canadian Rockies". It rated the Banff walk as "harder" (that is the toughest of his ratings).

Excellent Guide to the Canadian Rockies... 29. Januar 2008
Von D.S.Thurlow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
2007's "Canadian Rockies" is the latest Moon handbook on the swath of wonderful parks that straddle the Canadian Rockies from Jasper through Banff to Waterton on the U.S. border. Packaged in a convenient size and packed with a variety of information, "Canadian Rockies is a superb guide for planning a vacation in a area full of opportunities.

The guide covers Banff, Jasper, Yoho, Kootenay, and Waterton National Parks, along with the Kannaskis Country provincial parks just west of Calgary. Information is provided on a range of accomodations, restaurants, museums and tourist exhibits, and opportunities for recreation. The guide includes a nice selection of maps and photographs. Segments on local history provide context for each area. The guide includes information on access to the parks and cautionary warnings on interacting with the abundant wildlife.

Depending on the season, the Rockies offer hiking, camping, boating, biking, golf, or skiing at a variety of venues. For example, each park narrative includes a representative sample of day hikes and longer hikes. This reviewer and his family are frequent visitors to the Canadian Rockies and found unsurpassed opportunities for hikes to spectacular terrain accessable in few other places in North America.

This guide is very highly recommended to those planning a vacation in the Canadian Rockies.

great guide to explore an amazing area 30. Juli 2008
Von M. Drost - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
just spent 10 days in the canadian rockies and this guidebook made the trip great. it's an amazing area and information in this book is well organized and let's you plan your trip well. one thing we did find off was the grading system for hikes, some "easy" hikes were definitely not. outside of that this guidebook was very complete and accurate, from sights, to restaurants and lodging. one of the best travel books i've ever used.
Great resource for planning trip 10. August 2014
Von Gail Young - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
We used this to research the Canadian Rockies before a recent trip. It was a GREAT resource for our trip. My husband likes it so much that he bought the digital version so he would ALWAYS have it available (on his phone or tablet) when he didn't want to carry the book. I think there was a way to highlight things to reference quickly on the digital version.
