Now recognized by the United Nations as a world heritage ecosystem, Clayoquot Sound, with its spectacular bays and beaches, has enthralled everyone privileged to experience it-from the First Nations peoples to the first European explorers, to the recent wave of whale-watching tourists from around the world. Joanna Streetly and Adrian Dorst, who live in the area, bring an insider's knowledge and pride to this account of their week-long trip through Clayoquot by kayak. They depict in vivid words and breathtaking colour photographs the present-day allure of the sound. Streetly also delves into the region's colourful past, from Native culture and traditions to more recent, high-profile confrontations between forest companies and environmentalists. A new addition to the popular Raincoast Journeys series, this is a well-rounded portrait of one of the world's finest natural reserves, whose hard-won preservation is an inspiration to all lovers of the wild.
