Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.

A new resource out now is Off the Beaten Path: A Hiking Guide to Vancouver’s North Shore. It’s written by Norman Watt, who is an experienced hiker and the author of the ‘Off the Beaten Path’ column in the North Shore News. In the book, he takes us on some 31 hikes across the North Shore—15 in West Vancouver, 16 in North Vancouver. They’ve got some photographs, maps, descriptions of what one can see, as well as approximate times. There are long hikes, taking up a good part of the day, or ones a couple of hours long. It’s useful if you want to explore a little bit of the area, as you’ve never experienced before. The book is published by Harbour. Norman will be signing copies of the book Saturday, March 20th at Black Bond Books in North Vancouver, as well as at the Park & Tilford Save-On-Foods Sunday, March 21st—both days from 1.00 to 3.00pm. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Norman D. Watt; Good morning, Mr. Watt.
