Chasing Clayoquot: A Wilderness Almanac

Chasing Clayoquot: A Wilderness Almanac

David Pitt-Brooke


In the style of Thoreau, naturalist David Pitt-Brooke meditates on certainly one of Earth’s final untouched locations — Vancouver Island’s fabled Clayoquot Sound. This region got here to prominence in the course of “Clayoquot Summer,” a 1993 protest that led to 800 arrests but in addition halted the region's destruction through logging. Clayoquot Sound encompasses each that you can imagine panorama, from alpine tundra to old-growth temperate rain wooded area. Like Barry Lopez did with the north in Arctic Dreams, Pitt-Brooke techniques this wild, magical position by way of taking readers on an unforgettable trip for every month of the 12 months. Chasing Clayoquot is a profound — and political — journey via a unprecedented environment.
