From early explorers and Gold Rush days to modern times, British Columbia has always attracted visitors. Its rich landscape is filled with forests, glaciers, and rivers that draw outdoor enthusiasts; more rugged adventurers ride the Alaska Highway, an engineering marvel that cuts across the territory amid stunning scenery. Colossal mountains tower over behemoth rivers that carve gigantic valleys. Everything is giant sized, including the salmon, which draw eager anglers who fly into remote areas and compete only with grizzlies for the catch. Thousand-year-old Western red cedars in BC reach astounding sizes, and their trunks can measure up to 60 feet around. In the midst of all this lies Vancouver, consistently voted number one among North America's cities. Or visit Victoria, considered by many to be the nicest spot in North America. Scenic railways offer unique opportunities for relaxed sightseeing. Offshore are the Queen Charlotte Islands, where kayaking is a popular sport. This guide is produced by the authors of our best-selling Adventure Guide to the Inside Passage & Coastal Alaska. But here we tell you about everything British Columbia has to offer, from the often-photographed Butchart Gardens in Victoria to the Tatshenshini-Alsek Wilderness next to Alaska. It covers the parks, such as Yoho, Banff, Jasper, and Kootenay. Cities and towns are profiled in detail, with hundreds of restaurants, sightseeing, historic tours, and more. Accommodations are reviewed at all price levels, including five-star resorts, one-of-a-kind hotels, small B&Bs, and budget choices as well as camping and RV options. The authors point out when and where you're likely to spot wildlife - bears, moose, fish, and eagles - and offer tips on how to capture these animals on film. Recommended outfitters can take you flightseeing over glaciers, hiking into the wilderness, rafting over the rivers, or fishing in the mirror-still waters. All the details are here.

The mysterious Black Bat once again patrols the urban jungle. His targets: those who would prey on the weak, the helpless. Crusading District Attorney Anthony Quinn was scarred and blinded by gangland hoods. When an experimental transplant operation returns his sight, it also grants him the ability to see in the dark! Allowing the public to continue believing he is a harmless, blind attorney, Quinn invents a new identity, that of the crime-fighting avenger known as the Black Bat. With a trio of loyal aids, he launches his campaign against the forces of evil. From a giant Nazi-bred monster to a gun-slinging Commie assassin, here are four brand new tales by Andrew Salmon, Aaron Smith, Mark Justice, and Frank Schildiner - starring the master of the night, the Black Bat, once again thrilling pulp fans with his daring exploits.

Crusading attorney Anthony Quinn believed his career was over when a criminal threw acid into his face, blinding him. Months later, desperate to regain his sight, Quinn underwent a unique transplant operation which gave him the eyes of a slain lawman. Not only did the procedure work, but it also gave Quinn the ability to see in the dark. Using this fantastic gift, he created the Black Bat, a justice-seeking vigilante able to battle those villains beyond the reach of the law. Aided by his team of loyal crime-fighters, Carol Baldwin, Silk Kirby and Butch O'Leary, the Black Bat is once again on the prowl; his target, the depraved and evil denizens of his beloved city. New pulp writers, Aaron Smith, Joshua Reynolds, Jim Beard, and Frank Byrns offer up a deadly quartet of fast-paced action thrills - stories that pit the Black Bat against super human Nazi monsters, corrupt politicians involved with Major League Baseball, and team him with another classic pulp legend, Jim Anthony, the Super Detective. Black Bat Mystery Vol. Two is another great pulp collection from the high flying Airship 27 Productions you won't want to miss.
