Description

Much of British Columbia's coastline is a mystery, even to the people who inhabit it. The multitude of bays and inlets contain unique people, beautiful and often delicate wildlife, and thriving culture. This book of 24 essays continues where the first volume left off, covering the people, communities, ships, and wildlife of British Columbia's 27,000-kilometre coast. Exploring such diverse topics as moss to life on Texada Island, Secret Coastline II delivers a glimpse into life on coastal B.C. A book for kayakers, hikers, and armchair travelers alike, Secret Coastline II delves into what makes the west coast such a magnificent and intriguing place.
