Oblong 8vo, photo-illustrated cardcovers, plain spine. "From the rust-red shores of Shepody Bay to the island of GrandManan, the Bay of Fundy and its coastline are undergoing dramatic ecologic al changes. Voices of the Bay presents eloquent and honest reflections on these changes by nearly fifty people who make their homes and their living along the New Brunswick shores of the Bay of Fundy, leaving the reader with often sobering insights into the difficult issues they face in maintaining nature's bounty and the unique culture it has created. While Voices of the Bay may be called an oral history, it is first and foremost a message aboutthe present and the future. But it delivers this message within the contex t of years of expereience, a historical point of reference [...] Without this rudder, we are destined to drift aimlessly with the tide of change, perhaps to our peril." - rear cover.
