Summary
Master watercolourist Carol Evans often spends summers vagabonding up and down the Pacific Northwest coast, finding picturesque anchorages in communities from Gabriola Island to Klemtu. On these travels, Evans captures the beauty of life at the ocean's edge, with a special skill for depicting the interplay of light and water. This beautiful volume collects fourteen of her marvelous paintings, all inspired by children delighting in the coastal landscape--racing bikes along sand flats, searching under logs and in tide pools for tiny creatures, jigging at the dock for herring, dancing at a totem pole raising ceremony, making memories and leaving footprints in the sand. Matching Evans's wonderful watercolours with a lilting rhyming story by Caroline Woodward, A West Coast Summer tells of a timeless, idyllic summer where "Sea salt in the air floats everywhere /and cedars smell so sweet beside the shore." Readers of all ages will enjoy this charming collaboration, sure to become a West Coast children's classic
