In this exploration of one of the Earth's last untouched places, Clayoquot Sound on Vancouver Island, award-winning science writer David Pitt-Brooke takes the reader on twelve monthly journeys: chasing storms in January, whale-watching in April, swimming with spawning salmon in October. The result is a beautifully written paean to an extraordinary environment, a natural cathedral.
