Books…..

Another great book is ISLANDS IN THE SALISH SEA It is a community atlas, edited by Sheila Harrington and Judi Stevenson.
It is a gorgeous book, put together as an atlas, by 30 artists, each map is a work of art, showing each island with its history and interesting places to visit and explore.
The maps show trails to walk, historic places ,separate drawings show animal life and trees and fauna.
The Salish Sea is known as the Strait of Georgia, it runs the stretch of the Inside Passage , and is dotted with many islands.

Communities on 17 of the largest islands ,created these incredible maps, and tell stories of places and its people .
Robert Bateman wrote the preface, and the foreword is by Briony Penn.
I highly recommend this book, you will pick it up off the shelf, time and time again.
