Praise for Voyage of the Dreamspeaker

"The book is rich in colour photos and hand drawn maps; it includes many profiles of interesting boats and eccentric characters. Even for someone who has lived on the Coast for a long time, the book offers a few surprises. I didn't know, for example, that on Gibsons' seawalk there is a tenting spot, 'Club Ted,' for kayakers."
-Ian Degrass, Coast Reporter

"...I was curious to learn what this pair of writers and photographers could tell me about such a favoured destination and all the stops in between. The answer is: plenty."
-Martyn Clark, Times Colonist

"From London's Docklands, the 36-foot Dreamspeaker sailed the Atlantic, crossed North America in a truck, and plundged into the Pacific, for a jaunt from Bowen Island to Desolation Sound. Pity her crew didn't jettson more travel-writer cliches, but there's a jolly practicality to the text that makes this handsome book a good gift for a sailor, if not an armchair traveller."
-Globe and Mail

"...This latest volume from Anne and Laurence Yeadon-Jones is a more personal account of a four month trip spent revisiting favorite anchorages and friends between their home base in Vancouver and Desolation Sound to the north...Illustrated by color photos and Laurence's hand drawn maps, Voyage of the Dreamspeaker is a wonderful read for armchair travelers or for all of us who share Anne and Laurence's love of the BC coast."
