Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In the manner of Thoreau, naturalist David Pitt-Brooke meditates on one of Earth's last untouched places - Vancouver Island's fabled Clayoquot Sound. This area came to prominence during Clayoquot Summer, a 1993 protest that resulted in 800 arrests but also halted the region's destruction by logging. Clayoquot Sound encompasses every imaginable landscape, from alpine tundra to old-growth temperate rain forest. Like Barry Lopez did with the north in Arctic Dreams, Pitt-Brooke approaches this wild, magical place by taking readers on an unforgettable journey for each month of the year. Chasing Clayoquot is a profound - and political - trip through an extraordinary environment.

Synopsis:

First published in 2004, and now with a new introduction by the author and a foreword by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., this book of natural history, environmentalism, and politics explores one of the Earth's last primeval places: Clayoquot Sound. Pitt-Brooke takes the reader on 12 journeys, one for each month of the year. Each journey covers the outstanding natural event of that season, such as whale-watching in April, shorebird migration in May, and the salmon spawn in October.
