EXPLORING CANADA’S UNDISCOVERED PROVINCE

This glossy, full-colour guidebook from well-travelled Winnipeg Free Press columnist Bartley Kives offers a wide range of idiosyncratic adventures available year-round in every region of Manitoba.

“Culture junkies, motorists, wilderness travellers and anyone with even the slightest bit of wanderlust must pick up this informative and opinionated handbook, lest they be struck dead in the middle of the night by a wayward lightning strike. Wayward lightning strikes are God’s way of telling you to get out more often.” —Bartley Kives

  • FINALIST Manuela Dias Book Design of the Year award

“Instead of just relying on promotional material, Kives appears to have worn out tire rubber and shoe leather getting to know Manitoba’s cities, towns, backroads and wilderness areas. And instead of repeating clichés, Kives uses the same idiosyncratic, opinionated style that he employs in his Offroad columns…”  — Bob Armstrong, Winnipeg Free Press

“In adition to its being a wonderful resource for planning family outings, Kives makes it a more enjoyable read with his personal insights (“Bartley-isms”) into the places he has visited.” – Devi Sharma in The Winnipeg Free Press
