Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
