In the Hug of Hills: Kelowna, British Columbia (Hardcover)
One of the most stunning destinations in British Columbia, Kelowna remains a hidden gem for most travelers and even most Canadians. In the Hug of Hills is storyteller and photographer Cathryn Wellner's love letter to a small city in one of the most stunning spots on the planet.
Vibrant and increasingly diverse Kelowna has earned two nicknames: "Napa North" for the over 200 vineyards surrounding it and "Silicon Vineyard" for the growing high-tech sector bringing young families to the area. In the Hug of Hills explores the most-loved, and most-photographed, sites in this gateway to the Okanagan Valley.
The semi-arid region is home to a thriving agricultural sector. The valley's hub, Kelowna, has long been a draw for retirees looking for some of Canada's mildest winters. Lately it has also become a high-tech magnet. With a booming housing market and stunning scenery, Kelowna is a magnet for visitors. Many who come for a vacation end up making the city their home.
In the Hug of Hills is a love letter to an extraordinary place, with over 100 pages of colour photographs and text. Visitors will want it as a souvenir. Residents reading it will discover secret gems they may never have seen.
