5.0 out of 5 stars The last temperate rainforest forest, 21 Sept. 2004
By

This review is from: The Great Bear Rainforest: Canada's Forgotten Coast (Hardcover)
This is a great book for nature lovers in general, and an absolute must for anyone thinking of travelling to the northern British Columbian coast of Canada.
I had the good fortune to have this wonderful book as a companion on a journey there this summer and it really is a stunning and inspirational piece of work.
The photos clearly took many years and thousands of miles of hard slog to capture and are truly unique.
The MacAllister's have superbly distilled the essence of this incredible coastal ecosystem - the lush evergreen forest, the salmon runs, the seals, the bald eagles and the towering fiords and soaring peaks -- into a brilliant series of images.
The pictures of wolves and bears - grizzly, black and the legendary white Spirit Bear - are truly outstanding. It's all accompanied by some expert and very readable commentary, spiced up with some very human moments from the authors' travels in the region.
Overall it's an excellent book which you will probably return to time and time again to enjoy. It's also likely that some proceeds from it will go to support the MacAllister's efforts to protect this delicate environment from the current and very real threats of logging, hunting and industrial exploitation. So if you buy it, you'll be doing a bit of good into the bargain.
