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 is easily accessible from dozens of major U.S. and Canadian population centers.
Michael Runtz has spent decades observing and photographing the wildlife of Algonquin Park; the 4th edition of The Explorer’s Guide to Algonquin Park is the updated and expanded culmination of that work.
Informative but also highly evocative, Michael’s prose demonstrates a love of the natural world and a genuine desire to share it with others. Elevated by Michael’s award-winning wildlife photography, this work is one part guidebook, one part celebration of one of Canada’s most treasured Parks.
This new edition features:
- Access routes, hiking trails and canoe routes indicated on easy-to-read full-color maps
- Where, when and how to see moose, wolves, birds and other wildlife, including 3 new chapters (Butterflies, Odonates, and Wildflowers)
- Points of historical interest, such as ranger cabins and aboriginal rock paintings
- A feature on climate change and how it has and will affect Algonquin wildlife
- New photography from the last 10 years of Michael’s career
- Updated maps and lists of Park facilities and services.
Michael skillfully guides first-time visitors and seasoned explorers alike in this new, expanded color edition of The Explorer’s Guide to Algonquin Park.
