Summary
Forty skilled island authors share their love of the many islands in the Salish Sea on British Columbia's coast, through passionate, eclectic and reflective-new and previously unpublished-essays, personal memoir and poetry. The writers express how islands are special places of unique and lively communities, within a rare and beautiful ecosystem; with diverse indigenous, settler, and outsider history; circled by an endangered sea that protects and separates islanders from a more crowded, invasive civilization. This anthology is must read for anyone who visits, lives, or yearns to live on an island. In this era where the natural world is constantly threatened by environmental destruction, through climate change, ignorance and corporate greed, it is more important than ever, to affirm the significance and beauty of our island archipelagos, and to be proactive in protecting and preserving them for the future of all. Some of the islands represented in the book are: Bowen, Cortez, Denman, Gabriola, Galiano, Gambier, Hornby, Jedediah, Kuper, Lasqueti, Lummi, Mayne, Mitlenatch, Newcastle, Pender, Prevost, Protection, Quadra, Retreat, Salt Spring, Saturna, Savary, Senanus, Texada, Thetis, Thormanby, Tumbo, Valdes, Wise
