Jacqueline Windh writes: “I hope that this book will give you some idea of the complexity and allure of the wild west coast —the savage beauty,its fascinating history, and the people who make their home here … I want to show you the places that you don’t make it to (this time!),and give you greater insight into the places that you do see. And I hope to inspire you to help protect them so that this ancient and venerable land and its traditional inhabitants will be here for all future generations.”
This beautiful photographic study of Vancouver Island’s wild west coast 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.
“This book is a stunner.” The Province.
“A gloriously shot coffee table book that isn’t afraid to go off the Pacific Rim’s beaten path…” Monday Magazine.
“Her photographs of wildlife, people and landscapes are stunning, and her flowing narrative blends history, science and tradition.” The Globe and Mail.
