The Great Bear Rainforest is the fabled region that stretches up the rugged Pacific coast from the top of Vancouver Island to southern Alaska. A longtime resident of the area, award-winning photographer and conservationist Ian McAllister takes us on a deeply personal journey from the headwaters of the Great Bear Rainforest's unexplored river valleys down to where the ocean meets the rainforest and finally to the hidden depths of the offshore world.

Along the way, we meet the spectacular wildlife that inhabits the Great Bear Rainforest. In a not-so unusual day, McAllister quietly observes twenty seven bears fishing for salmon, three of which are the famed pure white spirit bear. McAllister introduces us to the First Nations people who have lived there for millennia and have become his close friends and allies, and to the scientists conducting groundbreaking research and racing against time to protect the rainforest from massive energy projects.

Rich with full-color photographs of the wolves, whales, and other creatures who make the rainforest their home, Great Bear Wild is a stunning celebration of this legendary area.

Reviews

[Ian McAllister] combines stunning photography of the natural world-lush underwater reefs, Kermode cubs feeding on salmon, spyhopping orcas, preening puffins-with stories from his explorations and perspectives from the indigenous people who have lived here for tens of thousands of years.The result is a convincing testament for a place on the planet largely untouched by the modern world, and a prayer to keep it that way. -- Christian Martin Cascadia Weekly
