  Author:   Peter Grant    
  Publisher:  MacIntyre Purcell Publishing Inc.

Whether it’s savouring whiskey-toned Scrumpie cider in Cobble Hill, getting with the goats on the roof in Coombs, scanning the surfers in Tuff City (Tofino), taking a gander at the brants—the noisy little sea goose that’s so popular in Qualicum Beach—or grokking the alien growth on the Avatar Grove cedars near Port Renfrew, this book has the MUST list every Islander and every visitor MUST have. From the wild, windswept shores of Spring Island to the best bang-for-your-buck breakfast in Victoria, it’s all here. Plus, cognoscenti from across the island weigh in with their own five MUSTs. Author Lynne Bowen, birder Bruce Whittington, wine connoisseur John Schreiner and sacred places finder Star Weiss all have a Take 5 of must-see places. You’re holding the ultimate insider MUST list. If you love Vancouver Island, you simply MUST have the Vancouver Island Book of Musts.
