The Great Saskatchewan Bucket List
By Robin and Arlene Karpan
Just in time for summer, this new guidebook helps you start checking things off your bucket list. Saskatchewan abounds with wonderful places to see, but The Great Saskatchewan Bucket List cuts to the chase and takes you to the best of the best. In every case, it’s something special about nature that leaves you with a sense of wonder, that when you see it, you can’t help but say, "Wow! This is really cool."
Follow award-winning writers and photographers, Robin and Arlene Karpan, to almost every corner of Saskatchewan, from the deep south to the far north, to experience the cream of the crop. Watch the rising sun transform Castle Butte into a brilliant red monolith. Enjoy the view from Canada’s longest pedestrian bridge, or from the top of Canada’s largest sand dunes.
Marvel at the mysterious Eye Cave on the mountain-like "Dead Man's River", or ponder the puzzle of the other-worldly Crooked Bush. Stand on the brink of Saskatchewan’s largest waterfall, or gaze over Lake Diefenbaker’s fairy-tale Sand Castle. Get up close and personal with wildlife that you find nowhere else in Canada. These and many more natural wonders await!
With over 170 stunning colour photographs, plus maps and coordinates, The Great Saskatchewan Bucket List not only shows you 50 top natural wonders, but also helps you get there. Each place is even rated as to how difficult it is to visit. A surprising number are fairly easy, but some will take more effort. After all, any quest worth its salt should have a few challenges.
The Great Saskatchewan Bucket List is available for $19.95 at bookstores and gift shops, or direct from Parkland Publishing at 306-242-7731 and www.parklandpublishing.com.
