Paddling Through Time: A Kayaking Journey Through Clayoquot Sound

Clayoquot Sound, with its spectacular bays and beaches, has enthralled everyone privileged to experience it - from the First Nations people and European explorers to the recent wave of whale-watching tourists from around the world. Joanna Streetly and Adrian Dorst are residents of Clayoquot who bring insiders' knowledge and pride to this account of a week-long trip by kayak through the area. In vivid words and breathtaking photographs, they depict the present-day allure of the Sound. Streetly, also delves into the region's colourful past, from Native culture and traditions to more recent, high-profile confrontations between forest companies and environmentalists. The result is a well-rounded and inspirational portrait of one of the world's finest natural reserves, now recognized by the United Nations as a World Heritage Ecosystem.
