Join Sunshine Coast author, Tony Greenfield on May 13 at the Gibsons and District Public Library for a slide show presentation and launch of his new book, Waterfalls of British Columbia.
Waterfalls of British Columbia is the only guidebook to catalogue 100 of the most majestic and awe-inspiring spectacles of the British Columbia landscape, as well as the parks which surround them. Ten years in the writing, the book organizes the entries by region with detailed descriptions of the height, geology, discovery and naming of each waterfall. Maps and detailed trail descriptions, as well as information on wild flowers, trees and birds in the area, complete each section. The book is full of colour photographs, interesting anecdotes and history, and provides a unique guide for day hikers, backpackers and outdoor enthusiasts alike.
Greenfield has a degree from the University of Liverpool in geography and has lived and worked on the Sunshine Coast for over 30 years. His tree-planting company, Whiskeyjack Reforestation, has taken him to every remote corner of B.C., and he now offers excursions through Whiskeyjack Nature Tours. He has been involved with the Sunshine Coast Natural History Society since his arrival on the Coast and was a founding member and President of the B.C. Field Ornithologists. Greenfield has also written A Hiking Guide to the Trails of the Lower Sunshine Coast, but his name will be most familiar to Coast readers through his birding column which appears in Coast Reporter.
