A volume in Nelson's Canadian Adventure Library series. “Here is a camping story that will appeal equally to girls and boys. Edward and Kate, together with their grown-up cousin Helen and their dog Nippy, spend a week camping on the Pacific Coast of Canada. The explorations and trips of the campers can be followed on the end-paper maps which make the story doubly interesting. Exciting adventures where catastrophe is only averted by a narrow margin are climaxed by the last adventure in which Edward and Kate paddle their Indian dug-out canoe “Klatawa” through a terrific storm with almost disastrous results.” - from the dj.
