All of the work of Nancy Turner deserves mention here, but this book relates to area where I live, and so this is the one I included on my reading list. But that said, don't stop at this book. This is an excellent book, Turner writes a very useful and accessible guidebook. But, don't stop here, go click on her name in the author section and read ALL of her stuff and learn about the province you call home.
