We were there.
This, apart from our photos, is a brilliant way to remember this practically unspoiled most beautiful part of the world.
If you cannot go there yourself, this book is a way to "live" the area.

This book, written by Ian and Karen McAllister, gives a wonderful inside view to one of the rarest ecosystems on our planet - the Great Bear Rainforest. It's not only filled with stunning photos, but also with lots of information, written with love to this wilderness.
I've visited the Great Bear Rainforest a few weeks ago, and it's the most beautiful place I've ever been, and I've travelled a lot. I highly recommend this book to all nature lovers, especially those who want to take a deeper look in the mystery of the pristine Spirit Bear.

This is a wonderful book for both nature and bear lovers alike. It is packed with beautiful color photos. Many interesting facts about the wildlife & plants of the area are detailed in the captions.
The landscape photos feature vibrant wildflowers, ancient forests, & mountains. There are also many remarkable pictures of several bear types. I loved the close-up shot of a bear eating a fish & another of a sprit bear on a log.
Stunning photos of some other animals include a puffin close-up, a bald eagle mother with baby, & an elephant seal gathering. If you can tear yourself away from the pictures, the text is equally impressive.
The authors tell of their experiences while exploring the rainforest. They also discusses the environmental concerns of the area. Journal entries from the trip are scatted throughout the book.

The pictures are awesome, powerful, profound and they make you feel you are there. The writing is very insightful. The journals put you there in a very personal way. The cause is just and vital. This is a powerful book that takes you to one of the last great places, not only in a geographical way but in a spiritual sense as well. Yes, bears need whole untouched ecosystems as well as old growth forests, as explained so beautifully in the book. One day the people of British Columbia and the Wolrd will realize that if the Great Spirit Bear Rainforest can survive, then so can humanity. THIS BOOK IS A KEEPER!
