Through his photographs, Sherman Hines reveals the complax magic of the four eastern provinces. As his camera captures a towering breakercrashing onto jagged rocks, or the delicate summer blooms of Prince Edward Island, or the gloss of varicoloured pebbles on a beach, he brings to us t he invigorating freshness and beauty that is paret of the rugged spirit of this remarkable land." from the front dj flap."
