Foreword by Elizabeth May and photos by Rich Duncan, it is a book that has helped me fall in love with Atl’Kitsem / Howe Sound, a spectacular fjord in Vancouver’s backyard.
From Chris Corrigan’s review in the Bowen Island Undercurrent:
“Whale in the Door: A Community Unites to Protect BC’s Howe Sound is a tour through the current state of the fjord where we make our home. Part documentary, part journal, part myth, Howe Sound herself is a central character in the book, constantly singing in Pauline’s ear hints and clues for her own journey of learning about this place, in this time. Along the way, she catches fragments of story and song from those that make their place here, from port managers to citizen scientists, from activists and leaders to the creatures themselves that live in the sea and forests of our inlet.”
