Product Description

Includes charts that cover Olympia, Washington, north on the east “inside passage” of Vancouver Island to Queen Charlotte Strait. Full color aerial photos enhance the historical charm of this book and its index of over 3,000 locations is extremely helpful. Read about the shoot-out on Skagit Island with one of the members of Butch Cassidy’s “Hole-in-the-Wall” gang or about how some “excellent fish” weighing up to 200 lbs. each inspired Capt. Vancouver to name the coastline adjacent to the Fraser River.

Before this classic historical atlas was republished in 1994, used copies of Stephen Hilson’s Evergreen Pacific Exploring Puget Sound & British Columbia sold for up to $150. This reissue of Hilson’s nautical atlas contains reproductions of government charts that are filled with historical anecdotes.

This is another Hilson atlas that will truly inspire dreams about voyages taken in the past and dreams of voyages to be made in the future.

            Comments about Exploring Puget Sound & British Columbia:

            We bought our first atlas in 1996 and found it invaluable when we headed north to Desolation Sound. Presentation is great and pages are divided so that cruising information is easy to find turning pages from one to another while underway or just planning.

            The history describing the naming of islands, bays, harbors and significant features is fun to read. Every page has an interesting history of the area by all explorers such as Vancouver and many others.

            The size of the atlas was not too large and it actually is about the same size of a folded chart so it will easily fit in the same area one stores their charts now.

            I would recommend one subscribes to notice to mariners to update this atlas so one stays current when using this (especially in Canadian waters which require one to have current paper charts on board.

            We would not leave home without this resource!
