Description
"The rain coast of British Columbia is one of the few wild pearls left in our natural world-where wolves and white bears stalk the foggy forests as they have for millennia. McAllister, along with Paquet and Darimont, wolf minds par excellence, live amongst the tides and teeming life of this rare, rare ecosystem."--Douglas W. Smith, author of Decade of the Wolf: Returning the Wild to Yellowstone and The Wolves of Yellowstone"It is here, among the wildest archipelagos of coastal British Columbia, that we witness, through McAllister's exquisite photos and essays, a window into an ancient, more magical world . . . The observational detail is unparalleled."--Doug Peacock, author of Grizzly Years and The Essential Grizzly: The Mingled Fates of Men and Bears"Ian McAllister has had the great fortune to witness an ecosystem of incredible mystery. I am grateful to him for his efforts to help preserve this unique landscape and read with great engagement of his experiences among a nation of wolves like no others."--Rick Bass, author of The New Wolves: The Return of the Mexican Wolf to the American Southwest and Caribou Rising: Defending the Porcupine Herd, Gwich-'in Culture, and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge"This book takes you into a world few people are lucky enough to visit. The writing is vivid and engaging, and the message is compelling."--Robert Bateman, world-renowned wildlife painter and author of Thinking Like a Mountain
