The Wild Coasts of Canada

An astounding collection of photographs and essays celebrating the grandeur of Canada’s most remote regions located along the three ocean coastlines.

Divided into three main sections — the Atlantic (Newfoundland and Labrador), the Arctic (Nunavut and The Northwest Passage), and the Pacific (Haida Gwaii and The Great Bear Rainforest) — the book will highlight features of geographical and cultural significance using glorious full-colour photographs and personal reflections written by some of Canada’s most honoured writers, including Wade Davis, Ken McGoogan, Terry Fallis, and Douglas Gibson. These stunning photographs and warm-hearted stories will inspire the reader to embark on their own journey to explore places still unfamiliar to them in this vast and magnificent landscape of Canada.
