'Select' doesn't entirely replace Island Alpine, instead this book focuses on the technical peaks and climbing routes. Island Alpine will continue to be the full guide to all (or at least most) of the mountain peaks on Vancouver Island.

So keep Island Alpine handy and if you're new to the Island mountains, well ideally both books should be on your shelf. An updated second edition to Island Alpine is underway - T.B.A.

To compliment Island Alpine Select with approach details and to improve the coverage of hiking trails and backcountry routes in Strathcona Park a new guidebook is also in production and is nearing completion. Hiking Strathcona Park will be a comprehensive guide to the loop trails, day hikes and expeditions in Strathcona Park. Production is well underway and this new title should be available at some point in 2017.
