An intimate look at Long Beach's dramatic landscapes and colourful characters.Each year, close to a million people visit the spectacular sweep of sand that stretches along Vancouver Island's west coast between Tofino and Ucluelet. In Long Beach Wild, long-time resident Adrienne Mason uses her intimate knowledge of the area to explore the region's rich natural and cultural history. Rarely seen archival photos as well as contemporary nature photography illustrate the interplay between the region's wilderness and lively culture. Mason shows how Long Beach was shaped by many forces, including glaciers, torrents of water, and hurricane-force winds. She describes how First Nations people found inspiration and sustenance in the area for thousands of years, hunting whales on the open ocean using harpoons with mussel-shell blades and great lengths of cedar-bark rope.Although now protected within the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, the Long Beach area is inevitably influenced by the countless visitors who flock there each year and the residents who call the region home. Long Beach Wild is a perfect visual gift for tourists, while its historical aspect will appeal to locals.
