The Wild Edge
Clayoquot, Long Beach & Barkley SoundBook - 2004
The Pacific Rim region of Vancouver Island -- including the Clayoquot wilderness, Long Beach, Barkley Sound and the communities of Tofino, Ucluelet and Port Alberni -- has become one of western Canada's prime tourist destinations, drawing over a million visitors a year. Few are disappointed by what they find, but the region is so vast and rich in natural wonders many have difficulty deciding just how to spend their time and return home with the uncomfortable feeling of having missed some of the main attractions. This beautiful photographic study of the region will go far towards revealing its legendary charms both to actual visitors and armchair travellers. Jacqueline Windh has spent ten years photographing the Clayoquot/Pacific Rim in all its seasons and moods, studying its history and getting to know its people. In The Wild Edge she shares her findings in images and words, supplementing her unforgettable scenic photographs with a light-hearted but informative text that blends history and science with essential visitor guidance.
