Also, the author has decided to show the pictures of the pictographs, with only the pictograph itself showing and none of the surrounding rock. So, of course, the images in the book stand out quite well, with the pictograph being rock and the background being a nice even grey. In the real world, there's no way to see how these pictographs stand out against the real rock they're on.
On our trip through Quetico we passed by 6 different pictograph sites and saw zero pictographs. One description was something like "on the rock, near the water, where the arrow is pointing on the map". In this instance, the island on the map was rather small and the real island was about 750m long and the whole east side of the island was rock face.
Again, I like the idea of the book but the descriptions of pictograph location could be greatly improved. Certainly, now, he could do GPS coordinates. I understand not putting the GPS coords in the book, as actually finding it myself with the crude description would have been a great treat, but heck, throw us a bone. Also, there has to be a better way of showing the pictograph so it might help others find it.
That said, some of the history and stories given are quite interesting. If it weren't for that and I didn't like the idea of this book so much it would have been 1-star.
