In her new book, Cousins takes us on 35 of the most pleasurable walks to be found in and around Vancouver, telling us something about the plants, birds and animals that can be seen along the way. She brings a fresh appreciation to familiar sights such as cattails, slugs and cedar trees, but she doesn't stop there. This book will also tell you where to find king gentians, what's underneath a mushroom, why a dipper bobs its head and why the existence of an ice-age fish called the Salish sucker is so precarious.
