Illustrated. Map. 8vo, blue cloth, silver lettering to spine. "In the summer of 1999, Dag Goering and Maria Coffey set off on an audacious adventure: to circumnavigate Vancouver Island bykayak, along some of North America's most storm battered coastlines on ear th. This ten-week, 1000 kilometre voyage stretched the limits of their skill and endurance. Paddling up to 50 kilometres per day, they dodged the tiderips and whirlpools of Johnstone Strait, battled around tumultuous Cape Sc ott and faced monstrous waves on the Bajo Reefs. In a small boat on the vast Pacific, they were constantly aware that the ocean offers little margin for error, and that one mistake could cost them their lives. The rewards of this daring expedition surpassed the challenges: unforgettable encounters with whales, wolves and bears; new friends made in First Nations villages, old homesteads and historic fishing ports; and an ever-changing kaleidoscopeof spectacular coastal vistas. Their journey gave them a deep respect for Vancouver Island's past and a profound appreciation for the fragility of its remaining wilderness. With breathtaking colour photographs and compellingjournal entries written from a unique male/female perspective, Visions of the Wild is an inspiring chronicle of the adventure of a lifetime, and a visual celebration of the untamed spirit of Canada's west coast. It is a "must read" for kayakers, seafarers, armchair adventurers, and all lovers of wild places." (from the dj). Very good in dustjacket. 30.00
