Stoddart, Toronto, 1998, 
BERTON, Pierre. Seacoasts. Photographs by André Gallant. (Toronto): Stoddart, (1998). Pp. 222. Illustrated. Oblong 4to, black cloth. A bright pictorial showcasing the history and geography of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arcticcoasts of Canada, supplemented with stunning photography. "Canada boasts t he longest coastline in the world. If it were straightened out 'it could bewound around the equator three and a half times and there would still be a bit left over. The beauty and the majesty of the seas surrounds Canada on three sides, offering a rich and varied landscape of fiords and inlets, salt marshes and tidal mudflats, sandbars and tombolos, pebbled beaches, spits, berms, and marine cliffs, washed, scoured,and half drowned by the tides and fragrant winds.' History made to come alive. Here are the potlatch people of the Pacific coast, whose leisure society gave the world a unique art; here are tales of the Arctic and the North West Passage; and the golden ageof sail on Atlantic shores. Photos include the dark mysteries of the Pacif ic rain forest and the serpentine channels of the Mackenzie Delta to the towering cliffs of Baffin Island and the vistas of the Cabot Trail. Accompanied by rare archival photos that bring to life the great days of the Artic whalers, of Maritime shipbuilding and the turn-of-the-century boom of the Pacific coast salmon industry. The book is a plea for marine conservation. The Pacific salmon, the Atlantic cod, the sea otter and the bowhead whale populations are becoming extinct. It is a celebration of our coastal heritage,a lament for a flawed past and a call for decisive action in the future." Vg in dj. 25.00
